I ain’t goin’ to lie

But I love riding my fixie. Ok ok…I ain’t goin’ to lie again, I’m no Nick James nor some NYC messenger that can ride without brakes. But I love my fixie!
redline 925

People ask me all the time why I like this bike so much. But its hard to really describe the feel of riding a fixie. But I’ll try to sum it up in a few short points and hopefully you can understand my affinity for it.

1. Simple.
2. You feel at one with the bike.
3. Your mind will be in a zen like state when riding a fixie.
4. The bike is uber light compared to geared bikes.
5. Relatively cheaper than most geared bikes. You can find some as cheap as $299.
6. Your cool status goes up when you ride a fixie.
7. Build great legs out of it.
8. Great workout.
9. You can wear cool knickers and messenger bags to complete the fixie look.
10.It’s euphoric.

    Um Moe…aren’t you the one with a bike that has pink bar tape?

    Moe- No, RL would never wear tights and cover up those smooth legs.
