Editor Spotlight: Big Shot Custom Fixed Gear Bikes

Bikes are great gifts- always have been, always will be. On a symbolic level they represent freedom, excitement and adventure and on a practical level they provide fitness, as well as a helpful and often needed form of transportation. So whether it’s a very first bike for a youngster, a “cool” bike for a teenager or even a bike for an adult, the two-wheeled gift is one sure to provide memories for years to come.

The Gift: Big Shot Custom Fixed Gear Bikes (available now $429)

THE SCOOP: Big Shot Bikes make amazing fixed-gear bikes. These bikes are not only cool because fixed-gear bikes are extremely hot right now, but because Big Shot Bikes make bikes designed by you…or a very lucky gift recipient.

Using the online bike building tool on the Big Shot Bikes site, a gift recipient can create a bike by deciding between five handle bar types and then choosing between eight color options for most of the bike parts (frame, tires, rims, chain, handle bars, etc). There are literally millions of possible creative ways to go while making a one of a kind, eye-catching “fixie”. After the bike is designed, it is shipped to the lucky giftee in less than a week.

The only thing cooler than designing a unique bike is actually taking it for a spin. One Gift Guru word to the wise – be prepared to chat (brag!) about the story of your bike, because people are going to ask. Big Shot Bikes stand way out in a crowd.

A Great Gift For: Big Shot Bikes are perfect for dads & recent grads. The bike would also be a great gift for a very creative type who would love the experience of customizing their own gift.

NOTE: Big Shot Bikes provided a custom bike for editorial review.
