You think there is an age limit to a fixed gear? I am 38 and still ride one, but get crazy looks now. It's almost embarrassing to be riding one now. I still skateboard and breakdance (been breaking since I was 14) as well so I am kind of a freak who can't grow up, and I am a family man. I usually don't give a damn what people think, but obviously I am because I wouldn't be writing this.
