    what do you prefer to see?
    a well used fixie or a brand new clean one?

    i prefer to see a well used fixie, since they looked like they have been well used. also it gives them a bit of character. i like seeing the battle scars and war wounds on them.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    You're not like the other people here in the trailer park...

    And I like to see both kinds of fixies. There's something nice about seeing a brand new, never been touched, one, but it's also nice to see a well-worn beater locked to a parking meter.

    especially when it's locked to a parking meter with a big ass nyc chain that you could easily lift over the top. lock jobs like that totally crack me up.

    Haha. That would be pretty funny. The worst part is, I bet there are would-be theives who look at it and think, "Damn, that chain is thick, I'm not even gonna try..."
