    Father of Fixed Gear

    I collect a ride all kinds of bikes. But this is one of my favorites, this photo was taken at a lighthouse celebration that they had here in San Diego. And yes it is a Fixie, it just does'nt have a chain

    Actually, I think there's some sort of ordinance about that.
    Although, it would be great to rock it with the pants rolled up, Che hat, NY lock around your waist. Be all "What...?"
    I didn't come here, and I ain't leaving.

    Somebody stole one from a bike shop in New Haven. The shop-owner rode it in the parade there. It was dope. Stealing it is not.

    I've seen someone get on one. They have a little step on the "downtube (?)" and you start it like a scooter. Grab the handlebars, one foot on the step, push a couple of times then swing up onto the seat.
