    That was seriously one of the best, most awe-inspiring things I've ever seen. No, wait...it wasn't.

    Not quite sure if this is parody or not.

    If this IS parody it's freakin' brilliant.
    If this is to be taken seriously, then this is the fixed gear version of RAD.

    I'm going to put the gears back on my Trek because I'm clearly not taking this FG thing seriously enough.

    " British accessory designer, H by Harris has commissioned film maker Manny Bonett to produce a viral campaign for his new collection, Manouevre. The collection is based on - in the words of Harris - 'the fixed gear individual. Men and women whose lifestyle is on the edge". "

    The FG bike is a Fashion statement, soon to be featured in your Esquire magazine.

    it's got everything you could want in a fixed gear video...a girl, bunny hops, a parking garage, some euro looking ******bags and a black guy on a fixed gear...this'll be the next MASH for sure

    mythbusters proved that you can polish a turd, and this is no exception. the cinematography was quite good, but the subject matter and "story line" were dreadful. i think it would have been much more successful if it had focused solely on the polo game (which i enjoyed) and cut all the suit-wearing hipsters doing tiny wheelies.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    Not sure that I know a word to properly describe what I just witnessed. I think "terrible" comes close.
