    who here is vegan?

    *disclaimer: not trying to in any way start a debate/flame war over the merits/validity of vegan or non-vegan diets, merely trying to guage how many there are here*

    kind of interesting being a total noob to the fixed/singlespeed community (have an IRO mark V on order from before Tony's recent trajedy struck) but in the little research i've done into the community i've seen it mentioned several places that there are a lot of vegans in the ss/fixed community and i've seen a few people post that they were vegan so i was wondering how many of the people posting here are. i've been vegan for 6 years, just now as i said getting a bike and going fixed, wondering what the hell the connection between fixed gear riders and veganism is if there even is any sort of connection at all.

    the connection?
    vegans are freaks who take their obsession with a healthy lifestyle to an extreme
    fixies are freaks who take their obession with bikes to an extreme.

    btw I like the freaky people...

    Is vegan really a lot more healthy? I thought it was a philosophy thing. I am not vegan, in case you can't tell.

    I'm vegan.

    It was not at all a health decision, though I've definitely gotten healthier since I made the switch. But I think the reasoning is mainly just because I pay attention to what I eat now, whereas before I'd not pay as much attention and just didn't eat as healthy. If you're already being picky about trace animal ingredients, it's not hard to be picky about hyrdogenated oils and such too. Also less junk food is vegan, so you just kinda cut it out and don't miss it. That said a vegan could still be an unhealthy eater and try to live off of twizzlers, hershy's chocolate syrup and non-frosted fruit flavored poptarts.

    welcome aboard.
    I do all of those things except for killing my food. Or [165]'s food, for that matter.
    I do kill fruitflies and mosquitos sometimes, but still have the audacity to call myself a vegan,
    and I even write a blog about it (see below).

    And *gasp* I eat honey. What kind of ***** is that, you ask? Good question, but I do.

    I have been vegetarian my entire life - blessed to have hippy parents! Vegan was a natural progression for me and it's been 12+ years now, maybe more. Growing up vegetarian to now is funny because you see people come and go and it is defiantly trendy to be socially conscience with your diet now. I welcome the trends - the more the better! It used to be so hard to find a heath food store and now they are on every corner as well as vegi options on menus. Makes my life easier. The same thing with the fixed gear explosion - it makes it easier to get bikes and parts... people complain but with the influx of vegans and bike enthusiast it makes life easier - less of a struggle to get the things you love.

    I'm a vegan. It's about simplicity and sustainability for me, and so is riding my fixed gear. Go figure.

    oh god there are poser vegans too? do you go to vegan websites and find 529563936 threads about hipster vegans? are the ready-wrapped vegan sandwiches in e vil delis the equivalent of pistas? do you hate stella mccartney for adidas the way these guys hate team puma? is that yellow guide to vegan eating in nyc the equivalent of a spoke card?

    Christ, I love steak. Honestly. Love it. I enjoy delicious too much to be vegan or vegetarian - and this isn't to say there aren't delicious veg dishes - I was accidentally vegetarian for a month or two a little while ago just because that's the food I happened to prepare for myself - there just isn't the variety and depth.
