    Need i say any more? I saw a hipster riding basically the same bike down the road the other day, in very heavy traffic, no brakes, obligatory double track straps securing his Converse snugly in, with a trick old Araya disc on it, I could only shake my head.

    I used to ride fixed (that's what we used to call it) to school in the eighties. As far as I'm concerned, The greatest pleasure in cycling is being able to freewheel!
