So, you think you know how to ride a fixie eh?

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)

So, you think you know how to ride a fixie eh?

You are probably the first person ever in the history of the world to discover artisic cycling (AKA kunst) and post it on BF. Congratulations.

But seriously...

^^ I have never seen the rap video about Performance, but I have seen the rap video about Haters sucking balls, which I'm pretty sure no one else has seen and it is epic.

"Kunst" is just the German word for "art." Artistic cycling is Kunstrad/Kunstradfahren -- "rad" = wheel, "radfahren" = cycling. So "Kunstradfahren" = art cycling
