Is anyone else jealous of this gigantic balloon tail?

Is anyone else jealous of this gigantic balloon tail?

While we disagree with Matt Shapiro’s choice to weave through traffic going the wrong way, we dig his style. Seriously, how much fun would it be to ride through a major city with a gigantic balloon tail?

    That looks like so much fun. Glad to see fixies getting some respect. There are many really good ones out there. You should see the road racing scene here in So. Cal, especially crit racing. So many of the licensed racers started as fixie riders/racers. Underground racing is so huge everywhere, the UCI has been stepping in in recent years to discourage unsanctioned racing by threatening to take away your license if you race in unsanctioned races. Look at Races like the Red Hook Crit, and Wolfpack hustle races like the LA Marathon Crash Race. Thousands are coming out to these events and many well known sponsors are sponsoring many of these events. I’m a roadie, but I have to show much love to my fixie brethren.
