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)

It's been reposted at least 50 billion times over the last couple of days in several sub-forums on here...as well as here.

Also, he's got brakes, look at his handlebars, STI shifters...

I see brake cables. Unless those are brifters, in which case he's riding a geared, freewheeled bike with no brakes, which is beyond stupid.

Actually it doesn't cancel out. The cyclist has 2 fails, riding in the wrong direction and riding carelessly with a video camera.

Isn't that New York?

Nowhere in the US are you required to wear a helmet over the age of 18(or younger).

1- It's Philadelphia, not New York.
2- He's riding a geared road bike with brakes.
3- It was funny.

Whatev. ^ I never thought he was brakeless. I like how a messenger pops out of nowhere ready to aid fellow cyclist.

I wasn't trying to make you feel dumb Vix.

lol. "Carry on" Meaning: "continue doing the illegal/unsafe things you were doing before we ran into each other because of the illegal/unsafe things we were doing and hope it doesn't happen again."

Brakeless or not, dude never even touched his brakes.

Ah, whatever...I laughed like hell.

eh. I'd say the cyclist is certainly more at fault than the pedestrian, but both were ok, so whatever
