After an end to many years of skateboarding and a few of whitewater creekboating, I've decided to pursue biking more seriously than just wandering around town. I recently purchased a fixed gear and some clipless pedals to make it interesting. So far I've only crashed while navigating some tight corners in my apartment. On a literary note - I enjoyed reading Tim Krabbe's "The Rider" on my honeymoon this summer, and it's inspired an interest in competitive cycling that I never knew I had.
I've read forum archives often while doing bike-related research and I'm glad to have finally signed up,
PS: Thanks to those that already answered the question in my first post!

I really, really need to see photos of this :roflmao2: !
I can't even imagine trying to ride my bikes around the house, although I do ride up the ramp to the dock at my workplace :D .
Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions :) !

"Tight corners in the apartment..." :lol: I wonder why!! :D
Welcome to the forum and to the fun of fixed gear riding. I'm too much of a wuss to try riding a "fixie"!!
