I'm 20 yrs old. I've only been riding a fixie for a couple days and it's been a little scary. But I think by now I'm getting used to it. The whole reason I joined FGR is to meet with other fixie riders who are new or maybe already have experience and want to ride, just for the heck of it. I'm not looking for anything really intense. I live in Fullerton, Ca. Also, if anybody could maybe point me to a group that is active that would be great! I mostly ride during the weekends when I have more free time. Continue

How's it hangin', FGR? My name is Andrew and I'm a New York City bike messenger trying to connect with people who ride just like me. It's hard to do so here! I see like six people on track bikes riding together and wonder "how in the world do you find people to roll with like that?" All my friends have BMX, MTBs, Hybrids, and Cruisers and whatever... They're all afraid to even ride MY bike! As a fixed-gear brakeless freewheel-hating urban rider I need a crew that can keep up and is down for rides across the city. That's why I joined up. I'm looking for hardcore (or chillaxed, I don't mind!) fixie riders to call up, roll out with, and eat road-bikers and Citi bikers for breakfast. PLEASE don't be afraid to hit me up even if you live in the Bronx, man! I feel like home here; let's get up and tear down bike lanes people! We live with the cars here in the Big Apple!Continue

Hi folks,I have been an avid cyclist for years and at the age of 50 fixed gear has caught my eye. I have been looking for a bike and have found two options. My LBS has a Fuji Track Classic. A very nice bike, not overly flashy but appears to be good value with the frame set and components. I have also considered some of the on-line mail order companies but I'm nervous about buying sight unseen.Any thoughts or advise would be appreciated.ThanksJeffBrantfordOntario, CanadaContinue

As good as new ivory white Brick Lane Bikes London Track frame fixed gear bike, Brooks and Miche components, Schwalbe tires. 58cm/23 inch frame. Hardly used, top shape, not a single defect. Only used a handful of times. Option to buy with Kryptonite mini lock and chain (the black lock holder is attached to the bike but can be removed).

Whilst sitting in traffic on my way to work a few months ago, this guy on a retro Fixie came past. Wow! So cool. I've only really ridden Mountain Bikes before but the Fixie thing really captured my imagination. So, after doing quite a lot of internet research, I plumped for a Viking Racemaster which I had delivered from Bikes2UDirect. The service was excellent and the bike is great. It came with drop down handlebars which I turned upside down and cut into Bullhorns. I've also added a small front brake lever to the straight bit. Riding the bike is every bit as good as I have read about. Hard to describe really but I think the simplicity and rawness makes you almost part of the machine. It took a bit of getting used to and I've not managed a skid stop yet but I'm working on it. I get home from work (uphill all the way) twice as quick now but I'm twice as knackered! My 'normal' bike riding friends think I'm crazy. They have no idea what they are missing! Continue
