    I am sooo glad that I watched that without sound. I don't want to hear anything Tecate-head has to say. Freestyle on those bikes? Flatland I can understand, but his fork snapped because it was never meant to be jammed down on the top of a ramp like that.

    I'll bet he can't even afford to replace the fork, because his dishwashing job can barely keep him surfing couches!

    I prefer to think of it as one less hipster bike, of course I do love riding fixed.

    You're the icing on the cake on the table at my wake.
    You're the extra ton of cash in my sinking life raft.

    You're the good things.

    I hope and pray whenever I see hipsters in tight jeans that the urban legend of tight pants lowering your sperm count is true.

    I was toying with the idea of selling my fixed gear, I would have to screen out hipsters though. Conducting interviews etc.. would just make it too much of a PITA.

    He seemed legit. Just moved to Austin from Eugene OR. Was looking for a way to get around. Owned a fixie back home....

    My wife saw the bike a month later on campus. The tool had pealed off all the sweet stickers and removed the tail light I included in the sale. He also had shoved some crap in the wheels.

    retarded.

    I love tight jeans, it gives me that special feeling. And when rolled up on one side I feel so unique.

    After doing a search to figure out what "replacing skid thru rear tire weekly" means, I have come to the conclusion that I will never appreciate "the fixie life". If I want a shittier mode of transport, I'll try a razer scooter. It's as "cool" as a brakeless road bike, and I'm sure it's much safer.

    What I found most hilarious is the people discussing how much they skid because they're so good at it, and they're showing off.

    Seriously.. if I saw someone skidding their tire 200' down a hill to make a turn, I'd think they were 12, poor, or just a douchebag.
