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)

4 fast, 4 furious

is skidding the human-powered drifting?
drifting has roots in japan.
fixed gear culture has roots in japan.

fixed gear is 'hip' for bike geeks, as is drifting for car geeks.

fast and furious 4: alleycats and racing caps?

track bikes on the street culture started in new york/jamaica, not japan. fixed gear "culture" started in 19th century europe because it was the earliest style of bicycle. njs culture, on the other hand...

i really don't care about who screwed up what facts, alls i know is i got WAAAAAY excited when i saw the previews for tokyo drift because i had been doing that on my bike on a daily basis for a while. i remember cheering and clapping during the previews in the theater and then shouting "ride a bike!!!"

i'm an awful, awful date.

agreed..sorta.

Fixed on the streets in Jamaica...not because of a 'street culture', but because that's all there were there and that's all you grew up riding.

Jamaica, the island, not Jamaica, Queens...hardly any fixed gears here.
