OK. Since you live on the west coast, which is a culture all its own and completely different from the rest of the country, I will afford you special dispensation to use the effete term "fixie", if you wish. You will notice that the title of the main subform is "Singlespeed & Fixed Gear", not "Singlespeed & Fixies." Furthermore, most posters ecominize by simply referring to their bikes as SS or FG, and everyone understands, even "hipsters."
As to your comments regarding track bikes .vs. fixed gears, I see fixed gears as being the genre and track .vs. road being the application, although I concede that in common usage FG means a bike meant for the road. The distinction is somewhat blurred depending on the extent that the bike is set up optimally for one purpose or the other. I actually have several fixed gear bikes, 6 to be precise, and they vary from track only to road only to multi-use. Three are steel and three are aluminum. None are carbon fiber, although two of them do have cf forks. Most of the characteristics of a track frame, such as a higher bottom bracket to minimize pedal strike, are desirable for both track (velodrome) use and road use. A track bike can be converted into a comfortable road bike by a simple change in handlebars / stem, and addition of a front brake for safety. Unless you are racing in the national / world championships, the same wheels / tires can be used on both the road and track. An example of this is my latest FG bike, which I intend to use on both the road and track.
