they have this thing called a freewheel.

it lets your bike coast when you're not pedaling.

and there are these things called hand brakes.

the disc kind stop your bike fast, reliably, and safely.

I didn't understand the fixie hipster thing because I live in Vegas and its either spandex wearing roadies or MTBers. But I'm in SF for the week and it has to be the epicenter of the tight jeans wearing, shirt two sizes too small, vans and a fixie. Damn kids, its a bike, not a culture!

But at least they're riding bikes, its all for a good cause. :D

ignore them and they'll go away

Don't worry, they are not mountain biking and at least they are on bikes. I tend to assume that most of the angry at hipsters posts on this forum stems from the fact that their color matched bikes really out did all of the blinged out, color matched and perfectly clean bikes that used to be the domain of the guys and girls on these forums.

You shun gears. They shun brakes and a free wheel! Skids with brakes just arent the same. You just dont get it. Fixies are cool! Fun too! You should try it. Now pull your chamois out your crack and go ride! LOL! :thumbsup:

Wait a second... adolescents/ young adults in generally liberal minded population centers such as the bay area of Kalifornia are doing strange things... sounds pretty normal to me. What's surprising to me is that bike riders don't like how other bike riders are using their particular style of bike. Get over it, who's next on the list to be attacked the "beach cruiser syndacate"?

If you think fixie riding is strange, you shoulda seen Market St today. When I woke up this morning I wasn't expecting to see a guy in a leather thong, chains and heels walking down the street. Actually there were are lot of fixies there for the gay pride parade...... Hmmm....... And I thought SS'ers were supposed to be the gay ones. :eek:

beach cruiser syndicate

That's funny. The worse ones are the Darn people using coaster brakes.
I enjoy a fixed gear ride. Not for hipster fasion but for training on that perfect circle man. I would wear lycra on a fixie too(ouch.) Then when you go mountain biking the guys wonder why you never stop pedaling.

Are you a hipster riding a fixed gear with no brakes that enjoys Pabst because it is ironic?
I have tight black girls jeans so I guess you got me... I only ride MTB so I can post on this forum.

Everyone knows fixies are waaay gayer than SS's. With a fixie you don't have to spend any money on brakes, that leaves more money for leather thongs, chains, and heels... duh.

Yeah but don't get me started on those damn beach cruiser guys with their board shorts and surfboard racks and all :madman:
