so iam new to the fixed gear bike as i have been riding a single speed these
last few years in nyc. iam going home late saturday night around 2am,and my left foot
shoelace somehow got wrapped around the pedal. with my foot in the clip i couldnt pull
it out and i fell over to my left away from traffic but was still unable to pull my foot out
of the pedal. a passerby in a nice pimped out bentley asked me if i was ok or needed
help and i said i needed a hand getting my foot out of the pedal. he stopped his car
and helped me pull my foot out. as soon as that happens two suv's one black and one
a silver bmw pull into the intersection and light it up with blue and red lights. these are
of course undercover cops but who pops out of the cars are 8 hasidic jews who were
apparently all undercover cops. they flashed me badges and asked if i needed ems.
i said no that i was ok and they all immediatly got back in their cars and sped off very fast.
it was really wild and surreal but the important part was me and my bike were ok.
tonight iam going home on the same street and i see a big fight 3 on 1 and a cat was getting
really messed up being held by two guys and hit in the head with a fire exinguisher, no cops
only in ny
