Description

A quality of life issue.

The Cutter Bones is a shining example of less is more. Smooth lines and classic styling make the Bones at home on the gritty city streets, parked outside a bustling downtown café—or dominating your local alley cat. The bulletproof Hi-Ten steel frame and single-speed flip/flop hub keep maintenance to a minimum, while the traditional brass-riveted ergo saddle, aluminum head badge, and espresso bartape ooze grandeur. Alloy drop bars and Weimann TR18 rims keep the Bones quick and durable enough for messenger work and sexy enough for bar-hopping.

  • Kenda 25c tires offer grip on compromised pavement
  • 46 x 18 tooth gearing gets you swiftly around town without forcing you to walk the hill back home
  • 1 1/8in head tube and steel fork provide stiff and responsive handling

Broken Bones

I am specifically writing this review to make the average, novice bike owner/purchaser aware that the Cutter frame is weak and "you do get what you pay for".
I purchased my Cutter Bones Bike off of Bonktown; I do admit, it was a steal at $250. It lasted for 6 months before the rear triangle completely bent appr. 4" out of alignment after hitting a small curb; the chain popped off the gears and grabbed the pedal thus locking up the bike and sending me into a 12ft skid. This seems like an extremely rare scenario. However, as seen in the photo, the tension placed on the chain was enough to bend the frame. The frame is cheap, "hi-ten" steal.
There is a lifetime warranty on the frame, but I have yet been able to contact Cutter Bikes; there is no phone number, email, etc. on their website.

I dunno, this sounds like a freak incident. My Bones bike has been extremely solid, and I've ridden it hard for almost 2 years. There is a contact page on their website, with a link at the very top. I've gotten great support from them regarding a bike pump that needed an O-ring.

I've owned this buy for 6 months, I ride everyday in the mean street of San Antonio Texas. This bike is such a good ride. I feel so good riding around in this bike.

I want to put a quill stem on my baby. What size do I need? Also, any good tools I can fit in my under seat bag that will help me get the tire off? I ehar QR's are bad cause of the horizontal dropouts.

Best Answer Responded on

As far and the tool question, look up the Pedro's Trixie, it is enough to get your wheel off, break the lock ring and crack a beer while your mounting that tire.

Great Joy Rider and Commuter

I use this bike to crank back and forth to school, run short errands, and ride home from the bar. The bike rides very smooth and quiet. I live in East TN and was worried I wouldn't be able to crank it up hills (my first single speed bike) but it is geared nicely. The bike has a nice response when you get out of the saddle and really start crankin it out to climb the hill or make the red light.

Cons:
- I threw the brake pads away after one ride and replaced them with some good ones. I am not riding fixed gear so only having one brake, it better work well.
-I had a tube blow out in the middle of the night. The rim tape is cheap and had slipped off of the spoke nipple. How it happened in the middle of the night, i dont know, but it woke me up.

For bonktown.com price of 224, I would highly recommend this bike to others.


I am 6'3" and the 60 fits like a glove.

cool bike

Bike showed up mostly assembled and was very easy to complete. Not the lightest, but it is steel and rides nice and smooth. Getting it on bonktown for 225 made it a no brainer. One detail where mine differed however was in the handlebars. Although they were drop bars, they are the traditional older style bars and do not have the flat spot that is seen in the pictures (and apparently in everyone else's pics). Not abig deal though.

Nice Bike

Grabbed this off bonktown for a sweet deal. If I would of paid full price it probably would have gotten 3 stars. Wheels needed a bit of truing and the bottom bracket was horrible. It creaked and wasn't smooth at all and when I took it out the spindle had a ton of horizontal slop. Luckily I had an extra square tappered BB of much better quality lying around. I do have to say the bike is a looker though, I love the styling and for the $230.00 I paid out the door I can't complain too much.

What's the max tire size the frame allows? Would it be possible to fit it with cyclocross tires for all-weather commuting?

how the heck did that happen?

I was riding home from work and a car pulled out in front of me and I hit the front of there car and flew over the hood. Once I came to a stop and stood up I realized that my frame was bent but weirdly enough my wheelset was completely fine.

Thanks

Responded on

awesome

great bike, got for 225 on bonktown and this was a steal. fast bike and easy to put together, comes 90% assembled. riding it freewheel. only gripes: the front brake is a little meh and the wheels needed a bit of truing. looks sweet, going to swap out the stock bars with bullhorns. i'm 5'9" with a 32" inseam and got the 56cm and it's a perfect fit with about 1-1.5 inches of junk clearance to the top tube.

Responded on

instead of buying bullhorns, you can just invert your stock bars and cut off what becomes the upper bend. just leave a little of teh upward curve. this is bascially what bullhorns are after all.

Responded on

this is what i ended up doing. i originally thought i'd keep the drops on hand just in case, so i bought a set of cheap horns on ebay with a 31.8mm center diameter. they didn't fit! i measured the stock bars and they are NOT 31.8mm diameter, they're 24.7. the 31.8mm stem clamp diameter and handlebar measurements listed above are a LIE! so i flopped and chopped, and reused the existing bar tape, and they look great now. too bad i wasted 20 bucks.
