Maybe, creating a trendy fixie is not that hard

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Not quite the hipster image associated to fixie bikes.

“I found the frame and painted it black, then did the wheels. Now I am taking it to Cyclo so they can put on a chain. I built it to have a fixed gear on one side and a freewheel on the other. I might sell it soon. I change my bikes a lot.”

Photographer’s notes: This guy always entertains me. I saw him with a very hipster-friendly fixie and had to ask. The frame is old, complete with dings, dents and marks. But a coat of paint and you have a hipster icon. Something like flipping a house.

I imagine he will be on the website again in a few weeks with another of his projects.
