So did anyone ever explain the whole fixed gear thing? What are the pro/ cons of them. Is it just to look cool? Where are the brakes?

Pros: you always have to pedal, no coasting, you brake with your legs, one gear all the time

Cons: you always have to pedal, no coasting, you brake with your legs, one gear all the time

It's not logical. It's dangerous. It's uncomfortable.

But I'm in great shape (better shape than I would be if I was riding a roadbike). I enjoy riding it. I've met a lot of new people

There are no brakes.
It connects you with your surrounding. You need to be more aware
I like it

YEAH BIKE! that is sick greg. i wish i could afford a nicer frame set... i'm saving for a bike with gears and brakes...

and for all the confusion... FIXED GEARS ARE A DAMN GOOD TIME EVERYONE. if you are into road racing, you should definitely have one to train on because it kicks your ass.

less weight could be a pro...
i saw a guy on a fixed gear bike the other day that pretty much convinced me that there are not to many pros to it. although i bet the challenge makes it a lot of fun.
i was riding my bicycle to work and had stopped at a red light. i was watching the cross walk count down on my left and i see this guy off in the distance on a bike and the count down is at about 3 seconds so i look right to check traffic that way to see if i can take off early and then look left again real quick and the light is just turned yellow and the bike guy has both feet on the ground is balancing his weight on his handle bars and is skidding towards the intersection. Then the light for us turns green and this guy goes flying through the intersection with both feet still on the ground trying to stop. I watched him until he stopped about 50 feet down the road against the curb. it was pretty funny. luckily every one in their cars had seen him and not started across the intersection. a moment later and...

anyway cool looking bike!

you definitely gotta be smart about riding one.. i always pay attention to what's going on way in front of me and try to keep my speed controllable. you just gotta be more aware of your surroundings.

Cons: You may wreck often (immigration, redwood road, parking lots, trax tracks)...did I mention often....

Pros: Famous last words like "Hey guys check this out!".........Followed by sexy lights..EMT's....and Rob going "Is he dead..?"

eh, the alum frameset will only drop a few pounds, a steel frameset is about 6 lbs. mine is like 3.5 or so.
but its much more aggressive geometry

and my gear ratio is 3.2 right now.
i might get another cog, so i can just swap the wheel back and forth, we'll see

what road bike are you looking at getting?

yeah i have the soma hub that is fixed on both sides, so most of the time i'm running 48 to 18 and when i ride up canyons i flip it to 48 to 15 for the ride down. i think the gear i run most of the time is perfect.. i spin out at about 33mph and it's not too hard on hills.

i'm getting the Trek Madone 4.7... i want to get into racing with my brother.. how much did that frameset cost you?? or was it just the whole bike?

i got the bike as a complete, i paid under $1k
im going to be getting some bullhorns and velocity rims, and depending on how much it cost, i'd like to get bladed spokes, but im sure they're expensive, i havent looked into them tho

that trek looks impressive. but unless your getting a deal, thats a lot of money.
what kind of racing are you going to be getting into?

You are on, your pedal bike VS. my Yaris, 1300 east 10600 south to the Gateway! And if I win you pay for my gas for a year! Let's do it!

But before I'll get anywhere near you, you need to take a shower! Brody says you have lost any vestige of personal hygiene.

Don't get huffy at me, Brody made it sound like you had a layer of slime and filth dribbled down the front of your shirt the last time he ran into you. Hey, whatever floats your boat...
