it's got a fixed cog so yeah i use the force in a sense. it also means i can smoke a fag with one hand, drink a coffee with the other and still stop when i get to work
I feel like some kind of circus commuter
I wonder if there's a site called retro unicycle yet....
Have to say, I don't really get the remove all visible brakes thing.
Never have I regularly cycled or commuted, and thought to myself: "You know what this thing needs? Less brakes...".
Just think it's one of those effected fashions, that's all - I mean most of the bikes you see without them are far from being so trick light you would use the weight-weeny argument, of at least a brake at the front for a fixie, or both for a SS that would suddenly turn the bike into some lardy, overweight lump of metal.
Different, I suppose, if all you ever do with a bike is use it on a track or in a velodrome, but for people that commute, just seems a bit James-Dean-wannabe.
