Is it really over?

There’s been a lot of talk about how fixed gear bikes are a big fad and its finally coming to an end.

Bike Snob NYC is always talking about it on his blog and even pokes fun of the bikes that he sees listed in Craigslist and To be honest with you, the fixed gear culture in Orange County, CA. isn’t the biggest movement out there so I wouldn’t really know if the trend/fad of fixed gears is actually going away.

So if you’re in the San Fran, LA, NYC, Seattle, Portland or any where that has or had a huge fixed gear population, can you enlighten me and share whether or not this is really the end of fixed gear bikes?
