    With a bike that colour-I'm not surprised


    Still, get it out on the road with the UK's current weather and it will soon tone down to a dirty brown tint.

    I see plenty of under-50 girls riding single speeds on my commute route......but an over-50 girl on a fixed is rare around here.

    Nice one. What's the story?

    Richard

    and if it's okay for old pharts to embarress themselves on fixies, it's okay for old sheilas too
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    It takes a confident person to ride a bike that color! Or to even ride with someone else on a bike that color!

    Sorry Alice,

    All the females I see riding fixed gear are barely 20+! They do seem quite good at it, and most don't have brakes. They do have some lovely piercings and tats though!

    The guy at the LBS said something similar to me when I asked about the Surly LHT.

    Alice, that bike is screaming for a pink helmet. Wanna borrow mine?

    Every time someone starts complaining about pink bikes, I get to post another picture of mine.

    Today, it got a good cleaning, a new chain, some tweaks the derailleur, and a 20-mile ride during modest snow flurries.

    Wow!

    Now that's a REAL fixed gear bike...

    We can't let the kids have all the fun...

    In addition to my bike being pink I have a flower headbadge...


    My friend Harv helped me with the bike...he even rode it a bit (his first time on a fixed and he's 72!).

    Hey, your bike looks great and fixed is fixed. BTW, there are four 50+ women in our racing club that race at the track. At least one, has a fixed gear bike that she rides on the road.

    But comparing those two bikes...it's like one is a greyhound and the other a cock-a-poo...
