i really have nothing positive to say about this. fixies were kinda cool maybe 6 years ago, but that was just cuz they were a novelty. now theyve become like another hipster fashion accessory. if your gonna ride bmx, get a damn bmx. dont handicapp yourself. but once upon a time i have seen a cool fixie video, but they were doing tricks that were legitimately unique and required a fixed gear. and that was a long time ago. what happened to that stuff? this just looks awkward, and not very much fun.

I agree with Jackhill. I can do grinds and 180's down stairs on my daughters 16 inch Princess bike but that doesn't make it cool...just weird and limited. These bikes are starting to look like 26 inch street bikes now so why not just ride a REAL bike? I will sum this up by saying..... Meh.

I too am perplexed as why these people don't ride normal bikes, but rag on them all you like you've gotta recognize they have some crazy skill... crazy hipster skill. I can't even ride one of those damn things down a hill, not to mention doing tricks on one.

Yeah they've got skill but I dont think its the actual fixed geared bikes that bug everyone... its the "hipster" that gets on everyones nerves.

So how is this fixed? Half of them are freewheeling. Cheaters. Hipsters that are too hip for fixed gears?!

I have a feeling the process of evolution will eliminate the Hipster Gene if they continue to think they are "too cool" to not wear helmets when jumping and tricking on a 19" frame.

At least those people wont get up the mountain and pollute my trails. Thumbs up to Chris Akrigg for winning the Mini Drome, he is a true bike rider.

I agree with most of you guys on here about the freestyle bs, but I think the idea of an obstacle course is legit. It's taking what people actually do on a fixie, e.g. being a messenger and riding in traffic and making it a competition.... but the rest, meh.

"The best in the game"..............................was it the guy throwing up gang signs on the fixie? A mac-10 holster would be hip. Right? I'm confused I guess.

Positive: I guess they are riding some form of bike?

Your right. I will say that the fixie craze has gotten a lot more people out on bikes over the past few years. And that's good for the cycling industry.

I go to school near where a lot of these foolios kick it, one of them (ging with the red afro) used to shredd moto and dirt jumps but I guess he went to the darkside... Shame... And that one fool Kenny Arimoto who talks was telling me at the skate park that he's just about ready to nut up and cop a bmx, so maybe it'll die out...

entering a comp and doing tricks on a fixie is only acceptable if you're doing it ironically
