Something to think about with the 925: what kind of handlebars do you prefer? If you don't like bullhorns, you can always swap them for something else.

Great bike for the money, and even available in Canada! Trust me, this is not always the case.

They got a lot right for a commuter fixie: steel, gearing, brakes, tire-clearance, chainguard, fenders... However, I just can't be seen on compact road geometry, yech. And in what way are bullhorns better than track, road or randonneur bars?
