    Where do I get a fixed gear that I can coast on?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Be a good way to sweat off some pounds, careening through red lights at busy intersections. Seriously, though, he's will to *rent* one? No in in Chitown has a beater they want to rent to pay off some new hubs?

    Funny you should mention that, I saw someone on the trail the other day with that exact setup, coasting without brakes...

    And a friend of mine who used to courier in Chicago 10 years ago noticed all of the other messengers riding without brakes, so he took his off... Needless to say that lasted one day before he put the brakes back on.

    you people need to brush up on your fixed gear history.

    kevin bacon rode a fixed gear in Quicksilver, and he's shown coasting in several places throughout the movie.
