    Tiny article in Spin magazine on SS/FG

    I got a free subscription to Spin somehow and flipping through it I notcied this small article on SS/FG. Anyone else see this?

    I'll scan it here in a bit, it's a really small article though, and they don't go into detail at all.

    saw this on another forum. my only thought was

    "IT'S A PHENOM"

    edit: now that I can actually see the photos, I recognize the girl and bike in the top center. It's Jeneane from King Kog. She and Jason stopped by my work and dropped off some shirts for the Oakland Scrape.

    it's a Gan Well Pro

    It's a phenom indeed. There's gonna be an article in the Wall Street Journal sometime in the next few weeks about fixed gear riding. THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. So....all you WSJ readers keep your eyes peeled, ok?

    There was also an article in Time Out NY featuring a few words from Hugo and a plug for NYBMA.com
    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    bike culture is not for sale (i thought).
    ". . .a striped jersey under his jacket; bared calves (outside the bicycle track); cap pushed back; feet in a false position on the pedals; a barking horn, a disorderly appearance, an always-dry tongue, and a definite fondness for wine merchants. . ."

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone riding one... I saw the bike at College Park Cycles in Maryland, but never on the road...

    They actually don't explain what a fixed gear is.

    looks more like a fashion profile than something anything close to substance.
    wouldn't expect too much more on a artical about bikes (sports?) in a music magazine. i also have not read spin in about 15yrs so not sure what its looking like these days.

    I'm kinda liking that "SPIN GENIUS THING" sticker. I think they're talking about me personally, rather than the mag or SS/FG.

    Could someone finally please explain this "fixed gear" thing to me please? Apparantly, a bike with a fixed gear in the rear is some recent new thing. Is this in any way related to "track" "cycling" where guys would "ride" on a "hardwood" "surface" "for" prizes? Thanks, I'm new here.

    haha yeah, i recognize a lot of those folks. i think there's been another article about fixed in spin cause Randy had his photo taken (probably by the same person who took those) and was in the mag but he's not in this article.

    the bike on the bottom has a rear brake and a silly ratio. cool to see people I know in a magazine though.

    Truth be told, I'm more interested in whether or not "...Jay-Z, the Notorious B.I.G., and Busta Rhymes attend[ed] the same school?"

    Heh.

    Funny how they take a photo in front of King Kog of one of somebody who works there, and then get the blurb from NYC bikes. And a stupid blurb at that.

    Was I the only one who had to google condor cycles to find out anything about that bike?
