i must seem like an actual retarded person, but i really like my bars like that, i enjoy every moment of it, put them on backwards when was drunk, seemed like a good idea, then i tried them on and liked it.
Also, these are BLB pable escobar bars, and they have an weird angle to them that makes riding them "the conventional" way would be much more unconfortable

I still like riding mine, though. I should get around to taking a new photo of mine and post it sometime.

why spend hundreds (sometimes thousands) maintaining a top-notch speed monster? for me personally the easy maintainance of a fixie is a part of the charm. you ride it, lube the chain once in a while, check if everything is tightened (like 5-6 screws) check pressure and that's it.

You should understand that most road cyclists are obsessed with weight and being aero. They look for ways to remove things from their bikes and try to have nothing that isn't of real tangible value to them. If fixies made any sense at all to a roadie, we'd all be riding them.

The point, if you need it spelled out, is that both brakes and a freewheel are worth having to even hardcore weight weenies and racers.
There is no argument to be made that a fixie is better in any way except maybe stunting around the block to Starbucks which is fine but isn't "cycling".

You're no more a cyclist than some dad in flip flops riding around his neighborhood. Can you do over 100 miles a day on your fixie? Can you make it over the mountain on your fixie? No.

first of all i've seen bikes like this parked outside of every single fucking university library in every fucking state

you're not unique, you're not special, you're not edgy. You're a wanker.

second of all this thread should be moved to /fa/ because you don't care about riding, you're using your bike as a fashion statement to prove a point about how much of a fucking hipster you are

third of all kill yourself, your weak bait is triggering the fuck out of me. Know that you deserve a quick and painful death. Good night.

not edgy, i hate create bikes (i already explained this) as they are overpriced for what they offer, people buy them to look like cool fixed gear fans and then ride on a freewheel like massive faggots.
that is my good luck charm, you shouldn't be worried about it, idiot.
maybe in americuh, yes, but i'm not from americuh IF YOU HADN'T NOTICED, and here this is beyond unique and it's what i was going.
i care about riding also, this is a board about transportation, and i'm talking about a bike, that is a means of transportation (or is it not?)
bring up valid points and then let's talk


also, if it was weak bait, why did you get triggered?

It's really not that hard. everyone that rides brakeless just wants you to think it is because they want to feel like a special snowflake. It's definitely harder there's no denying that, but it's reaaaaaaally fucking slow for climbing and descending compared to a bike with a freehub and gears because you're either cranking your ass off going uphill or spinning your ass off going downhill(if your riding clipless and can't footbrake). They are oudated and belong in velodromes outside of having a beater/grocery getter, because it's a lot easier to ride without hands and you don't have to worry about brake levers

Calling peeps faggots for riding market SS bikes while your own bike looks the way it does because you wanted to be beyond unique makes you the faggot.

That's a dope ass frame but the shit you've slapped on it makes it just as bad as those Creates you hate so much.

Get some nice pedals, remove retarded slogan from rearwheel, use the bar as intended or get an actual pursuit bar and fucking wrap it. Then you'll have a nice looking bike. Keep the smurf tho.

I thought i tried searching "create bicycle" but never did.

>Fixed geared bikes are the scourge of modern bicycle fashion, in fact fixies are beginning to epitomise fashion. In this fast moving world where fashion is playing an increasingly more important role in setting and reflecting culture and tastes it is essential to develop products which can not only keep up with the pace but stay ahead of the game. Create has succeeded in doing just that. With their expertise Create Bikes have long fulfilled the demand of leading cities such as London for the fixie fashion bike by making it much more accessible, affordable and desirable. The essential fashion accessory!
>Create Bikes belief is that just as fashion evolves to meet the demands of the world so must other products. We work hard to Create new designs, new colours and fresh ideas whilst always maintaining our goal to deliver great value to our customers.

I can see why people hate them.

Depends on what you mean by "harder"

My ride is already 52 minutes on average with 11-speed, I used to ride a single speed and it was an hour and fifteen, and my knees hurt all the time because I had to mash my way up hills

I guess if you're only going to the corner dive bar in your flyover meth town where the local hipsters try to cosplay as 2003 brooklynites, it doesn't really matter what you ride, just use whatever makes you feel "deck"

I can confirm it was messed up. What was messed up about it was that it was one gear for 18 miles with elevation changes.

Why can't you accept that you're like ten years late? If you want a "connection" to the drivetrain, chop off your legs and use a hand push wheelchair

Effectively, it's a fixie if you turn the wheel around. We can get into pedantic semantics about the bike being a fixie but I guarantee he used that free wheel which means he didn't ride it for the duration of trip as a fixie. Your argument is invalid.

All i'm saying is that people here think that fixies are some impossible bikes that can only run for 5 km before exploding.
It makes you look like bad cyclists because fixed gear bicycles are not much harder than a conventional bike, and people ride them, for long distances, with no problems.
See >>971234, for example, he can't accept that the guy did it with a fixie, when in reality it's a very plausible thing to do.
