    Riding fixed gear is not very popular where I live and I hadn't really known much about it until I got acquainted with FGG, Sheldon Brown, and Bike Forums.

    I expect that you did the right thing and seized their bicycles and banished them from ever riding fixed again.
    My Current Bikes:

    • 1993 Giant Kronos
    • 1974 Zeus (in restoration)
    • Cruzbike Silvio

    You're right to be skeptical... I recommend instead taking it with around 67-74% seriousness.

    I never registered here... until now! And I've been riding fixed for a few years now.
    So, hi, everyone.

    There are presently 20,610 active Bikeforums members. 464 members are online right now. 151 of those are in the SSFG forum.

    So about 1/3 of Bikeforums posts are on this forum.

    Does that mean 1/3 of all Bikeforums members ride fixed gear? No.
    Does that mean that 1/3 of all cyclists ride fixed gear? Of course not.

    How many of those 20,610 members signed on just to ask "how much is this bike worth"?

    its pretty fun to go thru the list of members and see how many just have one or two posts asking,

    1. What bike to buy
    2. Is this a good bike
    ...

    really now, the site is indexed by google - a simple web-search will likely answer the question.

    seriously, i search the bike forums through google, because the results are better and more accurate and it brings up bikeforums content anyway.
