I'm a full time non-traditional (read: old) college student, and also hold down a soul-killing full time job. I ride a fixed Surly Crosscheck (42x14) all around Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona. Yes, it's bloody hot here, but whatever. The so-called fixed craze hasn't yet reached Phoenix; I only know one other regular fixed rider, and only as an acquaintance, but I've seen other fixed bikes around (notably outside Casey Moore's pub night before last), so I know you're out there. We should go dodge traffic together or something. Preferably after (while?) having a pint or two.
Hey anarchocyclist! Just ran across this post, I'm riding fixed in Phoenix, but haven't had much time to bike since I've moved back due to a serious virus that's been killing me for 3 months. Doctors have no clue what I have, but I think I'm getting better, so once I'm recuperated we should ride!
