I have a fixed gear that has front and rear brakes, and use them. Not as often as a normal bike, really just for the hills. I love riding it because of the simplicty and control I have with it. They are perfect city bikes, being able to stay in the clips at lights, and to ride backwards to get out of way of things. And it's so quiet!

Wonderful commuter bike. Fast, Fun and steel is makes for a very comfortable ride.


My friend has this bike too. The thing I like about it is that by removing the fenders and putting risers on it it looks completely different. It's like he has 2 bikes now, just by changing a couple components.

Waiting for a riser bar, but this will be my first ride in 5 years.

Anyone own one of these? Brompton Bicycles. I'm thinking about getting one for my commute in to work.

Also looking at this. Dahon Curve SL.

Presented without comment. I'm the Red Jacket that most resembles my avatar. :D

I built one while still at school, something like 53:12 or something stupid. A friend borrowed it and showed up with an nicely angled frame and a fair amount of blood everywhere.
Chain came off at speed and caught on the pedal arm.:lol3

What I did today.

Angel Island, San Francisco Bay.

It was fun and I pretty much had the island to myself. I didn't see another person the whole time I was on the fire road.

We got there on a ferry boat.

My bike's not anything special, but I can't imagine I'd have a better time on a more expensive bike.

The tires worked okay on the hardpack and leaves and didn't have any problems with the loose gravel on the paved portions of my day.

I had the chain come off at about 40-43mph after I hit a huge pothole on one of the sick Seattle downhills. The chain wrapped around my crankarm, causing me to stop pedaling so fast that I was thrown forward, lifting the back wheel with me. I somehow kept the situation under control, and was able to come to a stop at the end of the hill.

Oh, I also hit a curb dead on last night. I swear I diden't see it. Now I need a new back wheel. :bluduh

Oh, you'd totally have a better time. Way better time. At least that's what you'd try to keep telling yourself. :lol3

Cool pics! :thumb
