I don't ride a fixie/single speed and don't plan on it. Yet over the past few years there's been this growing group of folks who love them. Here in Taiwan a good number of jr. high through college age kids ride them, ususally with the seat nose and track bars tipped way down and weird configurations of one or more plastic rear fenders attached to the seat post. And I've seen a few foreigners riding them as well, configured more like what I would expect to see in the States.
So the question: Why? What draws people to them?
