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 just looks like they were flipped up for some unknown reason. Either a trick session, or an injury requiring a bit more uprightedness, or hell, even a super sick heavy package. I can't tell which way the light is facing.

When I see poor lock job like such (or better just the front wheel locked to something, not the frame at all) I'm always temped to take it, move it 5 feet over and re-lock it with my own lock. Then leave a post-it with a number they can call me at to come teach them where they went wrong.

yeah then when they meet you they smash your head in with their lock and call the cops.

not that it matters when your top speed is a brisk walk.

those guys are the least graceful riders Ive ever seen on video.... if you cant skid to a stop properly you probably should ride with a brake or 2....

What a serious bunch of nerds... I hope that was a joke! Who hangs around the local MUP picnic table doing that stuff?! Watching the try to pull the front wheel up was pretty funny too. Then to top it all off, at the end they ride off side by side and the guy on the left almost creates a head on crash!! Yikes.....

Oh, I think this isn't a joke and I love two things about this video;

1) It's mostly featuring a bunch of dudes sitting at a table eating biscuits in sunglasses trying to look cool but failing miserably.

2) They choose to do their little "tricks" like true meatheads in the most crowded place they could find at a junction in two paths going into a set of pylons up a bridge.

Well done. At least we know meatheads doing dumb things on fixed gear bikes well beyond their skill level isn't just a American thing.

looks better than risers on a tt bike, that's for sure.
