It is possible to ride this bike in a fixed gear or as a standard freewheel speed bike and this is done by the manufacturer including a flip flop hub system.  The tires included on this bike are not your traditional road bike tire. Instead they can be considered more of a hybrid tire. Customers report them being bigger and thicker than a regular road bike.

The standing clearance of this bike is 31 inches and is perfectly suited for people who are 5ft 8” to 6ft tall. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a good bike for tall people and this bike is very accommodating.

This bike keeps bike riding simple and is very easy to use and performs well on roads that are less than perfect. Assembling the bike is effortless and can be completed in about 10 – 15 minutes with a few basic tools.

The Takara Kabuto Single Speed Road bike is a bright colorful bike which is sure to attract attention. Many people will be surprised to hear just how little you paid for this bike! Customers love the colors and state that the color is more of a mustard yellow color and the handle bars a brighter shade of yellow.

As with the majority of bikes today one of the biggest issues is finding a comfortable saddle. Many customers have changed theirs to suit themselves and this is something that you may wish to do as well.  A new saddle is not going to cost that much but can add a lot when it comes to your comfort level.

If you are in the market for an affordable bike that will give you a great workout then this Takara Kabuto bike would be a good choice. It works great on uneven road surfaces and you can still climb hills without too much effort.  Moms have installed child carriers on the front of the bike so they can enjoy a ride around town with their small child.

The overall consensus seems to be that this bike is worth the money and is very durable. It is a little heavier due to the single speed system but is solid and well built.
