Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Pittsburgh Riders! Interested In Starting PGHFixed?

First off, just wanted to thank everyone on this board for all the great posts. I've been lurking here for awhile and used the info I've found to build two great bikes!

It seems like every other city has a fixed gear specific forum except for Pittsburgh (sffixed, pdxfixed, sjfixed, etc). I know a lot of fixed gear riders in this town, and I think it would be fun to have a tighter community to organize group rides and such.

So how about it guys and gals, would any of you Pittsburgh kids be interested in having a forum to call your own? Does this already exist? Why does every other city use Vanilla forums? If there's enough interest I'll totally make this happen.

Edit: Please let me know if I'm breaking any rules by posting this here! Not trying to start any beef with BF, just make a place for a tighter community to grow!

Most of those other sites started here before breaking off.

(sigh; I've been here too long)

Enjoy

i'm a new fixed gear rider in the burgh and i'd definitely be interested. it's hard to find other riders since it seems the culture isn't really as pervasive here as other bigger cities.

Apparently by using a time machine, based on the date of the original post.

Time machine you say? I think I'll use it to go back in time to 2009 and start "development" on a "sick, aggressive, street frame" that can "drop" last month.
