I had to ask. Don't want to start a war here but seriously I
want Foo's opinions. I'm just curious. Foo is a cross section of
all kinds of cyclists. Thus your opinions will be valuable and interesting
Call it sociology. Pure curiousity.
Bike snob called the crop current fixed-gear riders the "Iran of Cycling"
I thought it was really, really funny. So what do you all think of this
cohort of cyclists and their predilections? I didn't put this in X forum because
I want Foo's opinion. I hold aside, completely and totally, my own partisan
stance (which by the way is moving towards the retro-grouch version of fg--
think waxed cotton seat bags and lugged steel).
Is this culture of fixed gear a rip-off? A *******ization? Free-spirited kids?
Unruly attitudinal jerks? Will it destroy knees? Do you simply not care?
Are you sick of u-lock wielding simians polluting your bike lanes? Is
it all that? Is it zen? A return to DIY roots?
Not talking about true track or path racing, off-season roadie training,
old tyme ASC hubs, Major Taylor or your granpa who rode a fixed-gear bike
cuz it was all he had.
