I had never seen people riding fixed-gear bikes until the Orange County Ride of Silence. I was intrigued by their simplicity and their mystique. I’ve been reading that they make awesome commuter bikes, I think they are rather suicidal. The day of CBB’s picnic, Steve Boehmke showed up riding a Bianchi Pista. I asked him if I can ride it, he agreed. It was a total different experience and now I want one. So I’ve been scouting a few sites to see if I can score a cheap fixie.
Do you or do you know of someone that rides a fixie to work?
