I had a funny interaction on my bike today. I bought a new gatorskin today (yeah baby) and went out as soon as I got it to 110 psi. Anyhow, I ran out of water about halfway through my route, so I stopped at a library to fill up the bottle. as I was unlocking my whip on the way out, a little girl and her mom walked up. The girl said "What is that man doing mommy?" or something to that effect, and her mom said "Yes honey, the man is unlocking his bike." Then she turned to me and said "Not that anyone would steal a singlespeed, anyway." I was like "It's a fixed-gear lady", to which she responded "Oh, even worse." It was good for a couple chuckles as I skidded across the library lawn.
Does anyone else get guff from random bystanders on account of their SS/fixed gear?
