Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

People with tight jeans fiding fixed gear bikes...call Bicycling magazine, quick!

Mostly I just ride really fast on the roads/trails with my bikes. After looking at those pics, I wish I did more fooling around like that...looks like a lot of fun.

I changed my mind. I'm just stoked on the entire thing. I need to read more blogs that involve people riding their bikes and having a good time.

Nice to see.
Too much post-shoot cropping for me though.

A friend of mine (kyle) said something about maybe helping out David w/ that documentary. I saw the trailer for Fast Friday and it looked like you guys had some good stuff going on.

I miss my hometown sometimes!

Are you shooting w/a Panasonic DVX100? That's a hot camera. 24P, 2 on-camera XLR inputs=nice.

snark != hate

I am wondering when the collective unconscious is going to get tired of the 4 tricks you can do on fixed and start going back to 20", though

There are far more than four tricks, and just like BMX, the sport is progressing...I can think of a few things more than 4:
-Leg over Skids
-Leg Over/Leg Through Skids
-Wheelies
-Bunny Hops
-Gaps
-BarSpins
-Slalom Skids
-TrackStands
-etc etc

I do not pratcie any of these tricks...I just ride...but still, as I said, it is still progressing. New tricks will emerge, and variations on old tricks as well!

I mean, I don't have a problem with any of it, and I do mess around in parking lots plenty myself, it just seems like as more people get interested in tricks maybe people will start getting back into bikes made for the purpose. I also think the possibilities of flatland with a fixed hub never really got exhausted, I'd love to see that come back.

PS - I have beer for the first FG decade I see successfully executed. The chick in the german trickbike video doesn't count
