    Is your fixed gear hot or not?

    Hi, I've just created a website where you can submit, view and rate fixed gear and single speed bikes - MyFixedGear.net. I suppose it's a little like Hot or Not for fixed gear bikes.

    The site's only just launched so I'd be really interested in what people think about it, and any suggestions on how to improve it. Also if you do like the site please feel free to submit your bike, which you can do here.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Okay, I'll be the one to say it. "I like bikes and most bike people and a lot of bike sites." Myfixedgear, I appreciate your enthusiasm and share it too. That said, I must go for a joyride. Thank you for your labors.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    I'd like to see the rating have a negative-0-positive set up.

    i thought this was about whether or not your bike was stolen prior to being purchased by you. lots of stolen stuff floating around these parts.

    ZiP0082, Ah yes, I can see how the title could be a little misleading.

    Hey Otis, I like that idea a lot. I'll have to have a look and see if that's something I can add. Thanks.

    not a bad idea but i'd suggest to rig up some way for the picture to automatically advance after you rate and there is a lot of repetition in the bikes coming up multiple times maybe find a way to limit or eliminate that.

Then you go find an alley and she does down on you and she pukes all over your dick and then pees all over the place.
    Thats tarck.

    There's already a site where people post pics of their bikes...oh yeah, this one! And the opinions are brutally honest.
    By looking at the ratings, you can already see that people are goofing around.
    Lead me not towards temptation, for I shall find it myself !

    Excellent site. My only suggestion would be to encourage more people to submit photos of themselves with their bike, like this. Or then again maybe not.

    Thanks a lot for the advice and submissions. Much appreciated.

    xiamsammyx - the repetition should hopefully be solved once there are more bikes on the site, as the next button just picks a random bike.

    I left my **** in the sun while shopping yesterday, came out and could barely touch the bars even with gloves on.

    That should get me hot

    Thanks, all your bikes are now up on the site. Deathhare, MyFixedGear takes a liberal view towards nudity so if you want to include naked pictures, knock yourself out (metaphorically, of course) but if you do try to keep it tasteful.
