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)

LOL. 14 is soo young to be riding fixe... and starting a crew? I don't think this is the right place to be doing that. anyway, back to my own interests.

well first, it's spelled fixie. second, it's probably best to never say the word fixie (or fixy) again.

yo doc, dont listen to anything that most people on here tell you, do what you want, spell slang terms the way you want, dress how you want, and feel free to start 'crews' if you want, and wear the same t-shirts as all your riding buddies. most people on this forum will just talk **** if you dont have the same ideas about things as they do. welcome to the internets.....

dude... i am like a half a mile from you.

too bad i don't want to hang out with 14 year olds, it would make me look creepy and i don't think i'd be able to put up with your teenage antics.

I'd advise you (14 to 14) to get in the habit of saying fixed gear around the old people
