what red circle?

never mind,

The fixie thing is really on its last legs. I mean you can buy a fixie at Wal-Mart, the least cool store on the planet. On the other hand the fixie fixation has made it easier to find some of the bits that retro bikers want like cloth tape and toe clips with straps.

I saw a headline this morning saying the London fixed wheel culture was dead so they will be out of business soon anyway.

That thing is cheap and nasty, definitely BSO quality hopefully no more than £60.

If it saves one bike from being butchered I'm in favour.

Just look at what's ridiculous out there. I reckon either 36 incher mtbs or those go-anywhere 4inch tractor tyre mtbs

I predict cyclocross will be the next big thing. Not that it's silly, just that it has various things about it that give it
a potentially broad appeal.

Maybe some silly variation on 'cross for the hipsters - those daft monstercross bikes for example.
