It only comes in one size and my friend who is 6ft doesn't really fit it that well (a little to big).

This thread isn't necessarily about safety. It's obvious why people want a front brake. This thread is more about the aesthetics and energy efficiency of a track bike and freewheel bike.

Thanks for giving a half descent answer.

How about going downhill, wouldn't you think coasting would save energy more energy than having to pedal constantly? Also, expand upon the whole going...

You guys seem to be ignoring the point of the thread. Why are you riding fixed with a brake, when you can have a freewheel/coast brake with a front brake and your bike will pretty much look the...

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the people who ride fixies in your area are idiots. At least where I live, people aren't running 54-13. One reason I bought a track bike for the street was because I...

So I'm guessing no hills? There comes a point when braking on a fixie when skidding becomes easier than pressure stopping.

Why ride fixed WITH a brake?

If you're doing tricks on a brakeless fixie, you shouldn't be doing it in the streets (I'm assuming barspins and keos), so the advocacy part of this is out of the picture.

DAAAMMMNNN... Ballin' baskets. Too much for the bike I'm putting it on. Maybe I'll get one of those if I get a custom made frame or something.

I didn't want a quick release basket. I said so in the first post. I'm using this for school, so everything will have to be in my backpack.

I find it funny that everything that Origin8 makes are contradictory to their brand name.
