    Who's got an orange/red fixie in Chicago?

    So we were driving around downtown on Friday night this week and I saw a fixie I KNOW I have seen somewhere before. Just plain orange, nothing fancy but its bothering me it looked so familiar. Didn't get much of a look at the rider. Saw a few other really cool ones too, some nice electrical tape jobs on a couple (do you really need electrical tape on an old yellow fixed gear though?)

    It may have... I saw mostly the rear triangle b/c I didn't notice it was a fixie till it passed definately that color though, and I thought I saw a bit of taping on it.

    Rhetorically?

    if the yellow fixie in question here had one fork leg taped and the other bare, along with other taping on the frame, and a yellow spoke card in the rr wheel, that would be one DumpsterVegan bumblebike.
