    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?

    My girlfriend went to spain a few summers ago, I really want to go now too. Did that tire even make it through the day?

    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?

    I like fixed gear videos where the people are going HAM not just slowly riding around the city and ruining tires

    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.
