New Los Angeles company Retrospec Bicycles offers affordable fixies in 10 color combinations to match any style. David Beckham recently chose the black and red El Diablo version (AC Milan colors?!?) pictured above. With 12 different wheel and grip color options, you can throw away those spray paint cans for customizing your fixie.  

Ely Khakshouri started Retrospec as a side project while he was still in college. At the time, he was frustrated that a bike with only one gear and no brakes could cost so much. Ely set out to build an affordable and customizable fixie for young adults who just want a stylish way to get around town.

Retrospec's goal is to produce fixies that use higher quality parts and look totally customized, all for a great price.  The steel frame bikes are built in an urban comfort design with a relaxed head tube rake. Alloy wheels with super deep v-rims (41 mm) and Kraton rubber O.K. grips come in 12 different colors from mint green to pink.

Though you may not see one of these featured on Fixed Gear Gallery anytime soon, you can consider this your "intro to fixie" bike as it comes with Radius brakes as well as a flip flop hub. With urban style 520 mm Alloy Riser handlebars and a Vader type bike saddle, the Restrospec fixie makes for a comfortable ride around town. 

The Retrospect fixies cost $349 and can be bought from your local bike store or design your own fixie online at SGV Bicycles.

  1. I bought my Retrospec a couple of months ago and LOVE IT! I haven’t had any issues with it. It is also the most comfortable fixie I have ever used; I usually can’t stand the seats but this one is quite comfortable. The best part is all the color options. I have the light blue frame, white rims, and yellow grips; looks amazing!

  2. we have alresdy been looking at them for my son’s christmas gift, they are such cool looking bikes with great prices. We loved the colors and Steven is having a hard time choosing his colors eventhough we have told him that we will get him a pair of diffrent color rims.

  3. Wow! These are the illest fixies I’ve seen. Been an enthusiast for a while and this company is doing it better than anyone out there.

  4. I got my first one a year ago. Haven’t had any problems with it, just compliments. Got my second one a few weeks ago when I saw pictures of David Beckham and family riding them in the newspapers.
    The incredible colors make riding as fun as keeping fit. Have started a few tricks recently as well. Price is unbeatable. Nothing comes close. Yea they are manufactured in China and no they are not junk. If they are good for the Becks family, its good enough for me. If you have a problem with made in China, I guess you can afford paying 3X as much for the same “junk” parts imported from the far east and assembled in US!

  5. As for being “extremely uncomfortable”, obviously you have an extremely sensitive “derrier” and a simple change of the seat will relieve your discomfort.

  6. Even if it’s not junk, buying Chinese is what got this country in the unenviable position we are in today. If you don’t understand why you probably couldn’t comprehend a detailed explanation. That being said, it’s still better to recycle an old frame, and lugs look better as well. But if you’re too lazy to care, go ahead and buy Chinese. Don’t blame me when you look around and discover we’ve turned into a third-world nation.

  7. Hey I work at Isla Vista Bikes in the Goleta area and this bikes are becoming a mayor hit!! Every fixie fan wants one!! The ladies love the pink one, we order 10 and now we are completely sold out!! You need more girl colors!! We have zero problem with them and no complaints

  8. I love the look of this bike I saw a promotional bike that they did for MG BLACK clothing and the bike is SICK…. I’m definitely getting one I figure Beckham who can afford any bike he wants chose RETROSPEC, then it must be because of the quality of these bikes.
