No FG in Nag's Head??
I just drove all the way through the outer banks....not a single fixed gear bike, but LOTS of beach cruisers. How do these people live with themselves?
It is very different from NYC where you see a FG every few blocks.
Dude I walked all over Tokyo and never saw a single fixed gear bike. Potus claims he once saw a SS somewhere, but the claim couldn't be verified. We saw one in Utsonomiya though (a mile from the velodrome).
in my mind Nags Head isnt even a city or town or whatever it actualy is, all i think of is strips of tall houses and a beach
72 & Sunny
agreed. As I was driving through last week I kept waiting for the downtown area to materialize....guess I missed it.
the dog ate my earbuds
so much sand in the roads.
need those wide ride tires.
There are some fixie riders in Manteo, 5 miles away. Most of the 'cruisers' are tourists.

I remember seeing a really hot old schwinn Jaguar (I think) on FGG that somebody had converted to a FG. THAT is what you should ride at the beach!
their question prolly is "just drove through manhatten and didnt see a single surfboard or surfrod...how do they live with themselves?"
I rode last summer on the OBX on the bike with gears.... It's a wicked unfriendly place for cycling; if I had a dollar for every "***" or "get on the sidewalk" comment I got, damn, I'd retire out there.... Still, hammering south-to-north with a 25mph tail-wind was righteous, as was riding the 3-mile long causeway over Oregon Inlet -- the descent from the apex of that bridge was schweeeeeet....
