“It is from Germany and brand new. I was looking for a fixie. Initially I was had for a race bike that I transformed into a fixie. and I rode like that for five years. And then I went looking for a real fixie. A track bike, something that was developed for the track. They are different rides. This is far more manoeuvrable, light and fun to ride The race bike is nicer over a long distance. I go to work with this one every day. I have brakes on it today because it is brand new but next week the brake will be gone. The rear brake is already gone.”
Photographer’s notes: More and more fixies are on the roads. I used to ride one in early season to beat my legs into shape. Your legs returned to form, some rhythm was found. Now I can see one on just about every road. They are synonymous with the hipster lifestyle and bike messengers.
