    Fixed = date ?

    Interesting story. After doing a zero mph fall on a ride the other day, a gorgeous gal on a bike came to check to see if I was ok. After, we rode together and she kept asking about my bike. Wound up getting asked out. Now, granted my college logic prof would kill me for this, but seeing as I was never asked out (while riding) in the three years I was riding non-fixed and now 2 months into riding fixed i was asked out, logically then the reason i was asked out was because I was riding a fixie, rIIIght?

    ........either that or she felt sorry for a pathetic schmoe who can't keep his bike upright.

    Dammit, when I pulled a 0mph fall all I got was laughed at by the homeless dude in the wheelchair who saw it. That sucked.

    One time i was walking my bike across the street and a guy on a fixie rolled up and saw me and screamed "nice bike!" right as he fell on his face. That's how i got to know him, I gave him my number but i wouldn't go out with him, i could sense something about him that i didn't like, he's cool though, we are friends now.

    the last three guys i dated I met because of bicycles, fixed of course, so ya, the logic works.

    I'm female, so I guess it makes a difference, but I get hit on if I'm on either track, road or '78 schwinn speedster.
    its just the bigger dorks that hit on me when I'm on the track bike. haha.
    I love when some spandex dude on a fancy colnago hits on me when I'm on my beater. it puts things in perspective.

    what's the perspective? something to do with the beater? something to do with the lycra clad colnago owner? sorry, not being a jerk...i just don't understand what's being put into perspective.

    oh I like a fancy colnago as much as anyone.
    I just was trying to get the point across that he obviously isn't talking about my bike when he says "nice ride"
    get it now?

    good! sorry to confuse you.


    I just want to add how endearing it is when a nice little shy boy takes a chance at conversation because he knows we have a common ground.

    it's always more meaningful when someone shy strikes up a conversation, because you know it's probably pretty awkward for them. on the other hand, some people are just too polished. those slick one-liners give me the creeps *shutter*. i don't know how you women can deal with that all the time.

    I've had a fixer upper before

    It's like converting or restoring... take something else and make it what you want. Booya!
