What are you trying to say?
I would say yes, but only if there are 2 or more lanes.
It only comes in one size and my friend who is 6ft doesn't really fit it that well (a little to big).
You're going to see a lot of "dumbasses" in SF then, lol.
Damn, you really do live up to your title. Thanks for the input. I just live by logic and asked a question. I have said in another thread that I ride another thread that I rode a brakeless track...
Thanks for the clarification.
Is this an image kind of thing?
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...
But why ride FIXED?!
PS. ted shred
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.
Well, just ride your bike like normally (without doing any tricks) to a safe place to do your tricks like an empty parking lot. No one wants to see a guy riding backwards in circles in the middle of...
Why do people ride track bikes with a front brake? Lets face it, how many people do you think riding their "fixies" do it for the look? I would say A LOT. What kind of annoys me are the people with...
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.
Sorry if I piss anyone off (who shouldn't be pissed off) for me bringing back an old thread, I just wanted to give my say.
I am an experienced cyclist from San Francisco who has 3 bikes, a...
You could've said to the officer. "My legs are brakes." "Are you going to ticket every skateboarder without brakes?"
I thought fixie street riding was a form over function kind of thing.
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.
Pretty much what I was thinking if I couldn't find a basket.
I didn't think I wrote that much. If you read the whole original post, the main reason I want a basket because I don't want a sweaty back from wearing something on my back. I find it very annoying...
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.
