Only on fark is the population capable of turning sport pearl clutching into displays of male primate outrage.

I just don't see how people can get so ticked off by this. If someone can pedal a fixie around San Francisco, more power to them. I can barely walk up those hills.

drewogatory: Well, you're an idiot then. Nothing like making your bike less functional just for fashion's sake. The shiat you have in your pockets weighs more than a freewheel.

I'm not worried about fashion or weight. And I have geared bikes, too. The fixed is just different. It's fun to ride.

Also one bonus I enjoy about the fixie is the anger it brings forth from overly-emotional people who are upset and confused by non-conformity.

forgotmydamnusername: trust-funded shiatheads

Somehow I prefer trust-funded shiatheads who find ways to reduce pollution to exurb shiatheads whose SUVs have never never been used for sport or utility.

/some shiatheads are worse than others
//agree that the former shiatheads ought to follow the damn rules of the road

Kinda cool, but once again there's a little of that self-congratulatory posturing we Americans are so good at. Let me know when they get as good as Asian cargo bikers --

So fixies are hipster bikes with a lot of crap taken off of them and cargo bikes are hipster bikes with a lot of crap put on them. Got it.
