The Mixie Straight Edge doesn't know what it is. A low-rider fixie? A speedy stunt bike? It sports a lightweight, 20-inch steel frame and a fixed cog—like a messenger's track bike—but it's got small, knobby wheels, and good brakes like a BMX bike. The hybrid design gives it the trappings of a tricked-out custom build. And those candy colors? I can't take my eyes off this thing. Join the ranks of the bike lane chic for $629.

This has to be the worst proportioned bike I've set my eyes on. Plus it's ugly as hell. I laughed at the mention it features "a lightweight steel frame"

No steel bike I've owned has ever qualified as "lightweight"
