- WTF is this a new trend???
The sandwich shop I go to for lunch is also the local hang out for all the cycle couriers. A dozen or so fixies lined up out side the shop and (and bizarrely an On-One with RS Revelations :confused: ).
Anywho, there was a fixie there to day, with the handlebars cut down so that either side of the stem, there was the length of the grips and nothing more. :confused:
never seen that before and looked highly dangerous and probably unstable at speed!Posted 9 years agoStonerSubscriber
Been a few eejits in London riding around on 300mm bars for a while now.
Just watch out for the boom in dildo bars:Posted 9 years ago
some also have their saddles impossibly high, like 6″+ above their cut down bars or maybe its they have their bars low? either way, dont see how they can ride around all day like that, see cars pulling out on them or pedestrians stepping from between cars….got to have sore a**/hands?Posted 9 years agojackthedogMember
Being a Sheffielder I’d never seen any of these ‘fixie’ types. I’d read about the phenomenon but not put a great deal of thought into it.
Then last weekend I visited a friend in London and we had a walk down Brick Lane and the surrounding area. Oh my. Never before have I seen such a bunch of ridiculous gayers on ridiculously inappropriately specced track bikes doing rubbish wheelies.
Each to his own like, but bloody hell what a bizarre trend.Posted 9 years agojackthedogMember
ARE THESE PEOPLE INSANE?
Good lord, I’d be embarassed to be seen on such a machine. What a ridiculous thing. Looks like they got the perspective wrong when they built it. I can only assume it’s the Vitus M.C.Escher limited edition.
But if it’s cool, then it’s cool and I must be a square.Posted 9 years agosodafarlsMember
My mate brought his iro fixie around the other day to fit some new dildo bars (he doesn’t own a set of allen keys, or a pump for that matter). Anyway, I thought the whole point of changing his handlebars to the almost identical width and sweep of his dildo bars was to show off the bulbous ends, ie the reason for the heavy chromed cast pig iron rather than the square and conventional bent tube arrangement.
Anyway, when bars where fitted, he then insisted on cutting the ends off his starspangled grips to refit them, but also be able to show off his bulbous ends. “Looks like Captain America’s cock” I told him. He took a bit of a sulk at that.
