    The Real SS/FG riders

    With all this talk and threads about hipsters, poseurs and jackass fixies of the day, I wondered if there were any "real" people that rode at all. I ride a roadie most of the time and am quite aware of all the poseurs in that genre. In this forum, we've devoted thousands of pages to wanna-be riders but scant little attention to the real riders.

    I did find a few pics of what appear to be legitimate SS/FG riders.








    But then, Google serves up this one:



    WTF?

    And this one?

    Sorry, but the leaning guy appears to have a double front crank and brifters

    Also look at the position of the chain coming off the bottom of the chainring.

    Change your concern from real riders to caring about resizing photos on the internetz

    i kinda dig how OP went the route of confusing us by making as little sense as possible.

    good work, broseph.

    well that last pic was a FG/SS poster on BF from back in the day so, that would a real rider that you couldn't figure out.

    maybe for some its a hobby/lifestyle and not a fashion sense so that makes them harder to identify
    I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.

    I love what you say.

    I wonder if anyone else thinks that the OP is so obviously a troll that it is deceiving.

    I use the ImageZoom extension for Firefox to fix the obnoxiously large images that pop up here on the forums. After you install it, you can resize and zoom in/out of any image easily. Just hold the right mouse button down with the cursor over the image and press the left mouse button to make the image fit the browser window, scroll with the wheel to zoom in/out in small increments or click the middle button to restore the image to the original size.

    this thread makes me want to get a louis vuitton top tube protector and remove my toe clips, and buy a frame that is 5 sizes too small, and run my bike over with a hummer.
