    Portland Fixed Gear Club

    Hey,

    Are there any groups/clubs in Portland for fixed gear riders? I'm thinking about setting up a message board and organizing some longer weekend rides. Would this be something any of you would be interested in?

    -Alex

    I thought about starting a Vbulletin message board for fixed gear riders too. Vbulletin licensing is expensive though and I'd rather buy carbon rims, which I did.

    ha ha, cool. i was wondering about that. bf is cool, but regional forums are cool too since they can really help bring people together to ride, race, do cool things, get to know one another and meet up around town; just generally build a nice bike scene in the area. this is cool.

    it could be, but it doesn't have to be. i've posted and watched on sffixed for a bit, and a lot of cool meetups, rides, and even recovery of stolen bikes has been facilitated by the way this can be used as a tool for building community. it doesn't have to be exclusive or elite, though.

    It definitely should though.

    So which one of you guys was doing 1 legged skids in the parking lot at 11th and Hawthorne Saturday afternoon?

    Can I join your crew and get matching tattoos? I would've stopped by and talk to you, but I was so close to the bar I couldn't risk having to wait any longer to start drinking that morning.

    oh. i saw something about that, what's up with that?

    edit: something that's great on the regional boards is threads tend to stay on topic and chatter free compared to bfssfg because off topic stuff seems to get taken to pm's (or "whispers" on sffixed) fairly quickly. so, alex, pm me on this.

    OK, I spent $6 and about 10 minutes setting up this site:

    http://www.pdxfixed.com

    Hopefully it will be useful to organize some rides.

    i liked the 180-ish bunny hop. the planting of feet looked weak even as much as it reminded me of 80s skate tricks. meh, this video's okay, they'll get better. the whole "track bike trick" scene will. i was watching a movie from the 80s about skateboarding yesterday and was thinking about how weak the tricks looked compared to modern stuff. then i realized that if people think track bike tricks look weak, a lot of that is because it's an underdeveloped pursuit so far.
