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)

I am not a fan of that style, either. If you want a BMX bike, get a BMX bike. That said, whatever makes people happy is fine with me.

Wrong. What makes the majority happy on BFSSFG is RIGHT!

Gee I dunno. I really think if I saw one on the street, I would just laugh, and maybe think to myself "Oh gee that is silly.... So silly."

aeropsokes, riser bars, and 60 inch gears just make so much sense together!

Yeah, too bad no current BMX bike is made in such color. Anyways, those colors are pretty sweet, maybe 11 bikes color coordinated like that would be over kill..but a few I wouldn't see a big deal.

Back in the 80's, BMX involved a lot of neon anodized parts. And neon mag wheels. So, now you have a bunch of dudes in their 30's who are feeling nostalgic for their first BMX but find track bikes to be more their size and style.

It's all for nostalgia's sake. I don't really like it that much, but I'm certainly not hating.

They look cool.

I'd ride one, but not for $X,XXX or however f ucking much they are.

I don't see how they are BMX inspired. They also have "steal me" written all over it.

I don't think you would have said this if you had not read the comments at the bottom of the web page.

Why can't you just speak your mind? You know you want one.

I'd put a bunch of black lights on mine, so when I ride at night I'd look even more like the f ucking $hit...

If you took those bikes, painted them black with maybe some celeste accents, got rid of those ghastly decals, and put some drops on them, they might be ok.
