Viking Racemaster or Mongoose Maurice?

Postby Aquavista97 » Mon Nov 05, 2012 13:56 pm

Fancy myself a fixie (just because it'll get me out cycling more for shorter journeys when I don't want to take my shiny new steed out), and really don't want or need to spend a lot of money. It really is for casual use only, and I have therefore been eyeing up the following two options:

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/mongoose-maurice-2012/

Does anyone have any opinions as to which to choose between them, and why? Thanks for any help you can give me....

2nd hand Langster or the Mongoose perhaps? Best place to ask would be at http://www.lfgss.com/

Failing the above, I have an SE draft lite in 'punk pink' which I was going to sell soon. 54cm. let me know (by PM'ing me) if interested
