Crave giveaway: Hipster-friendly fixie bike from Critical Cycles

Roll up your pant leg and get ready to hop on a free fixie bike, the prize in this week's ultrahip Crave giveaway.

You've got your flannel shirt, your facial hair and your man bun. What's missing from your hipster ensemble? A fixie bike, that's what. Luckily for you, there's the Crave giveaway.

This week, we have a Critical Harper fixie bike worth $330 from Critical Cycles, a bicycle maker based in Los Angeles. Critical recently tweaked its manufacturing and packaging processes, and its bikes now arrive to your door 95 percent assembled. It should only take you about 15 minutes to get your new ride from the box to the streets of the hippest urban neighborhoods around.

So how do you go about winning a Critical Harper single-speed, fixed-gear bike with a hand-built track frame? There are a few rules, so roll up your pant leg, turn down your vinyl records and read on.
