    Fixed Gear Scene Boulder, CO?

    Ok, Ok... I searched and didn't come up with any current (or useful) info on Fixed Riding in Boulder, Colorado. That said I am going to be moving there in about a month and would like to maybe hook up with some folks and do some riding. Please post any and all info/pics/advice/etc.

    Many Thanks In Advance,

    Justin (PF)

    pretty good following in fort collins!

    im sure there are plenty in boulder too though. lots of sick bike shops there! very hilly though in boulder, might want to get yourself a handbrake if you dont have one. not saying you are a bad rider, but wait until you see how people drive there... then you will understand what im sayin!

    I appreciate it. BTW I will definitely be running a hand brake! Also, nice rides! I love me some Dubs.

    Thanks,

    Pan Fry- There is not really an organized scene or regular events. Lots of riders though, everyone seems to just hang out with their own peoples. The past couple summers I organized a lot of alleycats but my workload this summer has been outlandish. I am a mechanic at University Bikes and I work most every day, stop by sometime.

    ksyrius-I used to roll with some of the Jimmy Johns guys, you should stop by too.

    "U bikes" is awesome as already posted. Also check out Sports Garage on Spruce. Some fixie riders there too.

    A guy there invited me to join them on a century "mystery route" group ride on July 4th this year. They don't announce the route until the day of the ride, but at 100 miles it sounded like a blast (or a death ride...not sure which). I was out of town so I missed it.

    I ride 2 brakes, got big decents and freakish drivers.

    I'm east of town so not totally dialed on the boulder scene, but there are lots of riders around.

    Check out the thursday night cruiser ride in downtown if you are into that sort of thing. Draws a pretty big crowd. Go to the Rio Grande, get a marg and hang on the patio...you can't miss the ride from there.
