    Oh look, a 'Fixie' - if I remember the CL ad correctly, trannys in Portland will literally knock 'fixie' riders off their bikes to blow them.

    Is locking the bike to a subway car even remotely legal? Does the owner even care? I think not.

    Love the rain bonnet on the seat. Or is that to deflect the urine/vomit/coffee spills?
    I believe we have run out of trolls.

    It was a bright sunny day today so I am going to go with urine/diarrhea/vomit.

    No it isn't legal.

    FWIW the owner of this "fixie" was getting a blowie from a hipster tranny just outside of frame.

    Well, that's because the tranny that was giving me a hand job last time I was in Portland told me, of course. S/he said that the only thing that stopped he/r from workin' the shaft with those stubble-ringed lips was the fact I was riding a Vespa and not a 'fixie'. The excema on he/r arms and the dirt under he/r nails were a bit of a turn-off, but the work was eventually completed, if you know what I mean...

    the 'fixie' in the pic has brakes. front only is ok, both brakes = fail. bike could be a 'single speed". drop out are right for a single speed frame.the bars give it away. drops would be a wanna be track rider. risers are hipster.

    [/quote]thanks, ill go with that. not a hipster thou.cause 1- i shave, 2- i shower,3- i dont spray that musk smelling stuff on to mask my body oder, and 4-i race the bike.hipsters try to make a 'in' ,in bike racing , but they find out you actually have to "race". so what you get in cx is 1 hipster races (either beg. or single speed class) and his 20 buddies hang out(for some reason they are attracted to large rocks, so you usually find them there)
