nice bike c_c
least amount of moving parts. the choice seemed obvious

it was expensive to build a bike in norway but i did a pretty good job of it anyway. i am not sure how i'm going to get this back to canada. its way better than the bike i have at home

I didn't realize how good I was until I just watched that video. That's not much of a contest, imo. I didn't see anybody with skills that couldn't be developed in six months with some good workouts and a lot of scraped knees, anyway.

ssd, now can you understand my disdain for fixies (coming from this area)? i said 'trendy' and i meant it.



more cool videos (not from my area):
<object width="400" height="302"><param name="allowfullscree n" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptacc ess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_i d=1919245&amp;server =vimeo.com&amp;show_ title=1&amp;show_byl ine=1&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=&amp ;fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_i d=1919245&amp;server =vimeo.com&amp;show_ title=1&amp;show_byl ine=1&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=&amp ;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="tru e" allowscriptaccess="a lways" width="400" height="302"></embed></object>

Damn those videos are sick. Tons of trendy fixie riders up in Vancouver too. I can't hate on em because i can appreciate the skill.

I have a free agent 24" that i ride regularly and a early 90's Rocky Mountain hammer that needs a lot of work. I was thinking of converting it to a single gear with a flywheel and keeping the v-brakes. then i could put a stronger bmx 3-piece crank.

your disdain is misplaced. you don't hate fixed gear bicycles you hate stupid trendy douchebags. the ones in your area just happen to ride fixed gear bicycles

more appropriately, i have a disdain for the fixie riders in my area. that animosity carried over to ssd when i imagined him on a fixie (riding with the trendy folks in town)

i've learned.

i still wanna see one of you's riding backwards or popping a wheelie

i was going to berate you for getting off the subject of fixed-gear, but that's like bond shit right there. talk about the perfect way to escape any place at anytime.

i think i might get one
