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)

fixed gears: you can't coast brake or pedal for more than fifty feet without whip skidding

You're the one with the long hair? Just saying your frame looks pretty big for you and the other guy's (the first guy) looks pretty small. Nice video though. Looks like fun.

Sicke edit brah.

The camera work is good and all but I never understand why these videos try to show riders going fast while skidding the whole time. Do you want to ride fast - or slow down?

That's a great summary for how I feel with some recent videos I've seen. Haul ass.....skid.....make up for lost speed.....skid....wtf? Skidding for the sake of skidding is dumb, unless it's a unique skid or part of some other trick....which these were not.

What if you just HATE rubber and part of your way for showing your disdain for it is buying a FG bike just so you can skid all the time and destroy it? Did you even think of that before making fun of other people's phobias?

People like myself enjoy skidding just for the fun of it. I don't think it serves any other purpose than having fun. It is kind of like drifting in a car (which also serve no purpose other than calling it a form of art or style).

Looks like you had a lot of fun. Is that frame blue or silver? It looked really good with white bar tape and a brown saddle.
