    Fixie as a verb

    Overheard: "so me and Dan fixie'd over to Jimmie's place and smoked a bowl"

    Has the word "fixie" become a verb? or is it another hipster thang?

    the problem i have with it is that you're calling out the fact the you're riding a fixie.
    who cares? it's a bike, you rode it, get over it. lots of people ride bikes, and just 'cause yours is a member of a subset of bikes doesn't really make any difference.

    what's next? we geared over there, we recumbed over there, we foldied over there?

    ugh.

    The "smoked a bowl" part is really what makes it poetry.
