Red You R Dead fixed gear showroom

reddead5

White and red color scheme on fixed gear bikes is one of my favorites setups so I was very excited to learn that fixed gear track bike brand Red You R Dead finally opened up their new showroom location in L.A. The company was started by Blake Coburn and Patrick Winget a little over two years ago.  Their custom model “Masher” starts at $599.00 which is not bad. If red/white is not your cup of tea, they will do custom powder coat for about $26.00
