    uh, it's actually pretty informative (for those unfamiliar with a fixed gear) and pretty reasonable.

    I really shouldn't have read your post based solely on your name and the fact that you use the "word" "fixy" but i decided to and read the article and I see absolutely nothing wrong with the article written that you linked to. in fact i would say its almost 100% accurate. now the real question is... what did you see wrong with what he said?

    Sounds like he (fixyfreak) feels as if he has something to prove.

    dur

    I dont really see what he said that you have a problem with. It seems like his intention was to explain fixed to people who casually or don't ride.

    grow.

    up.

    Sometimes this forums makes me a fixy hater.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    very sorry

    Ok, Ok. I'm sorry, I got excited, I wanted approval. I've read it again - it is excellent. I'm sorry.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Welcome to the forum
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    If you hate my bikes that's cool with me... If you tell me that because of my bike I drink my coffee like the soccer mom that takes 5 minutes to order her drink.... That is something else.

    I though the author nailed it spot on. Fixed gear riding is a fad.
