I've been FIXED!

This morning I had the chance to flip-flop the RedLine 925’s wheels from freewheel to fixie!

Here’s the fixed gear

Check out the beautiful paint job! It’s this cool charcoal blueish gray color. Man I love that LOGO!
Nice paint job

yummy

So I took the 925 around the neighborhood since this is my first experience with a Fixed Gear bike. I have to say, I see the potential to have tons of fun and I started to see why so many people are ditching gears…Riding a fixie is just different. Like Nick said, its hard to describe. But you get this feeling of being cool cuz its a fixie and a feeling of “Wow I’m riding a fixie!” I have to say, riding fixies will take some getting used to. I know I have to practice around the neighborhood in order for me to feel confident enough to ride it to work…17 miles away!

    I’m trying to avoid the “I’m riding a fixie!” aspect as much as possible – it going through two freewheels in six months that made me consider it in the first place. I was really surprised how easy it was to climb hills on the thing. RL, are you getting the feel of braking with your legs, or are you sticking with the hand brakes?

  2. RL Policar says:

    I’ve been using the brakes just because of my left hamstring issue. I’m trying as much as I can to use my legs to slow down. But until I’m completely healed, then brakes it is.

    Nick, you weren’t kidding about climbing hills…It’s weird but its easier!

    There’s a whole discussion thread on fixies and brakes or no brakes at
