^^^^

That's a sweet video.

Okay, question for everyone in here.
Am I the only one who hates how fixed gears have become the new BMX? Like, watching the MASH dvd 5 years ago is what got me into riding. Just watching them fly down hills super fast and skidding seemed super fun. Not to mention the sleek/minimal look of the bikes were super attractive. Even all the "trick" stuff in Macaframa was pretty sweet. But now everyone's slapping pegs, bmx bars, fat fucking tires, and lowering the seat and it's just fucking dumb. Idk, maybe it's just me, but I prefer to just ride my bike. Go fast as fuck. Commute. Even doing tricks on a more conventional track bike, like Keo Curry, is pretty sweet. But this new style of fixed gear riding is for the birds.

FGFS is cool, i was into that when it got popular like two or three years ago when leader and volume were just getting into it. I moved to BMX after a while though cause it just seemed more natural at the time, but I'm stoked to see how much FGFS developed. I still prefer speeding on my track bike over tricks though, to each his own.

I don't like fgfs at all, but I hate the keo curry/macaframa version of it even more just because campy shamals getting slammed into the ground isn't pretty. (and this is also why there are so many broken pista concepts/leader 725s or any other aluminum frame)

Sometimes I flip my rear wheel around and ride the freewheel. Except I still don't have brakes. So...

Anyone else go on group rides with friends?
Every Saturday night we usually get a pretty good sized group riding together.
Last night there was only 5 of us.



Only 3 of us were on fixed gears, other two had to borrow road bikes. But it's fun to just cruise around town late at night.

If you were talking to me, pretty sure it's an Eight Inch. My friend got a blank from them and painted it up for me.. But I'm building up a new bike with a 80's road frame soon, don't like the look of these modern frames eh

Still on the lookout for an 80/90s track frame but it's pretty hard where I live. Conversions look sick when they're simple and sleek!

man i loved riding around my town, but once all these hipsters/beaners heard about fixed gears and started selling that shit at wal mart made me kinda sad for the fixie culture and the dudes that have always been riding

fixies have always been for fags/honkeys in capris so don't feel too bad.

is there a company that's kind of known for making the best seats? I have a road bike I ride around on that's about 25 years old and still has the original seat on it. It's not that comfortable, and it's pretty worn, so I'm looking to get something new.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

You can try brooks saddles.
They're pricey but i've heard theyre worth the buck.

Either that or some Selle italia saddles

Brooks look goofy imo. I'd look into Fizik, those are some quality saddles.
