A place to talk about fgfs?

I guess I'm one of the few who finds fixed gear freestyle to be really cool. Ive wanted a fixed gear for a while and seeing this type of riding has made me rethink the way I want my fixed gear built up. I don't really know what parts are good and what works when it comes to this type of riding, but I don't feel like this forum is the place to ask these questions because any time anyone does they are shot down and told to go buy a bmx bike. I was wondering if there is a place where we can talk about fgfs and not be flamed.

Other forums/blogs/etc.

Straightest fork you can find, some risers, and the strongest frame you can find.

I would totally dig a FGFS forum. I think FGFS is very cool and I don't understand the hate.

hehe well I guess there isn't a better time than now to say that.....

I've started a forum for fixed gear tricks!

http://tricktrack.freeforums.org/

I will be adding a whole bunch of trick tip tutorials and I will start sharing it with people alot more soon. As of now it's mostly a shell, but a good idea I think. I felt like it was something that was missing.

Hope you join! And if you know anybody that does tricks share it with them!!

I'm just posting these as inspiration for the FGFS guys to aspire to do in the next 25-50 years.

In front of the flying spaghetti monster I call bull**** on the mod who, after a member complains about flaming on a legitimate topic, goes on flaming.
