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
Guy needs to ride a freewheel with no brakes, the latest in urban haute couture.
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?Originally Posted by panasoanic

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.
