Ok, this is when you know when the fixed gear thing has jumped the shark. My mother knows I bought my pista last year and i explained to her what it was--track frame for the street--direct drive, etc. etc.
Yesterday my 60 yr old mom calls and i say i cant talk, i am going out for a ride. She asks: "Oh, on your fixie?"
I said, "where did you here that and please don't ever call serentity [edit: serenity] a 'fixie' again."
