Don't ride a fixed in traffic!....Does anyone ride fixed with two brakes? What is that like? They get you fit though, I reckon a 10 mile ride is like doing around 20 on a geared bike!


Got a friend that went to 2 brakes on his fixie after being in 3 wrecks with cars in 2 months...yep they pulled in front or cut him off without looking. He said that he didn't like the way it looked but he could stop faster and it was safer...with less leg strain. I guess most of it depends on the traffic where you live.

i sell these down south, like em alot, most people never touch the fixed sprocket and a couple of people have asked to have a drop road bar rather than the stoker bar but other than that most have left them as standard. the sizes can seem a little funny though, i thought the top tube was a little short for the size of frame but maybe i have an odd body!!

make sure you ride one before you buy, it'll give you a better idea but i found they are fun to ride.
