    That's a "fixie thing"? Who knew.. I was making fun of some guy I saw get on his bike like that recently. I didn't realize I was getting on my bike wrong..

    i do this sometimes. i also mount normally sometimes. actually i guess i usually mount this way. but i did see some guy with super wide bars try to do this the other day, and ended up kicking his bars really hard. it was pretty funny. wide bars are the devil.

    I do the handlebar mount/dismount now and even on my road bike. Less chances of splitting your pants. Ruined a couple of pairs of pants throwing my leg over the saddle. and no my pants weren't that tight.

    i actually read that before i had my fixie, just poking around 63xc.com (it's a great site). it's a pretty anti-climactic article, kind of builds you up like it's going to be this awesome double-backflip move, when really you just... swing your leg.... over the handlebars..

    I do it all the time, cause my bars are lower than my seat. That's a pretty insane description though...
