    should i feel like less of a cyclist?

    I ride fixed and i don't skid, rarely do track stands, and i don't use clips. my bars are from an old schwinn 3 speed cruiser, my frame is almost garbage, I have 27 inch wheels with crappy kenda tires, and my seat is super plush gel loaded and not 'lightweight' in the least sense. haHA!

    "cyclist(noun)-a person who rides or travels by bicycle, motorcycle, etc."



    i think you're probably enough of a cyclist.


    don't let bikeweenies and such get to you.

    It all depends on how you define a cyclist. I would argue to say you are probably more "cyclist" than most weekend warrior. That is if you use you bike for transpotation and recreation.

    Someone will always have a better seat.
    Someone will always have a nicer set of wheels and tires.
    Someone will always have better bars, too.
    No one will feel the way you feel when you're jammin'
    Enjoy.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    Riding a fixed-gear without some sort of foot-retention device, even with a brake, is dangerous and irresponsible. Please at least get some clips and straps.
