#nobrakes is just as bad as cagers!
>>
nope brakeless 4lyf
>>
No brakes if I'm the velodrome, but on the road we kill fixie foos
>>
I rode brakeless for a few weeks just to try it out. There are litterally no advantages, only negatives

18 mph

Brain dead pedestrians that freeze like deer after blindly jumping in front of a moving object deserve to die. When its a car, charges are never laid.

Spoken like a truly edgy 12 year old who has no clue about what the laws are really like.

Except, you know... when it happens at a crosswalk....
>>

I have always thought messengers rode fixies:

- they are cheap
- easy to fix
- a bike thief would pass a brakeless bike
>>
>>1144424
You pretty much nailed it. I rode delivery and no matter what you start with it just slowly morphs into a fixed gear, because shit breaks and you don't want to spend money.

Until you drop/break your chain.
>>
>>1144630
idk man ive ridden every bike i own into the ground and they generally become single speeds but not fixed gear

ive only owned one fixed gear and it was shit and broke literally within a day. gear just fucking shore off under power. complete bullshit. fuck fixies
>>

>fuck fixies

>>1144843
Is this 3 picture sequence a meme or wtf
>>
>>1144655
How does one drop a chain without shifting, assuming your chain is the proper length?
>>
>>1144866
you are also assuming that your cog and chainring is perfectly round, and that you regularly adjust your rear wheel to account for chain stretch. Even then, I'm sure that things may cause your chain to drop
>>
>>1144866
The chain of a fixie sees stress in both directions unlike freewheeled bikes so setting proper chain tension is extremely important in preventing a dropped chain. Dropped chains on a fixie spells disaster since it locks the wheel. Honestly though, I never had a dropped chain since I regularly measure my chain tension which is at ±1cm
>>
>>1144885
Also fuck that brakes are for fakes meme. Fixie with brakes is best bike master race
>>
>>1144033
>The whole drive-train is a rear brake
And rear brakes are fucking useless.
>>
>>1144635
Yeah this is the only brake I would put on mibe.
>>
>>1144847
yes, usually with a caption blaming a humorous scapegoat. ie "fucking normies reeeee"
>>
>>1143846
that ear looks surprisingly gore
>>
>>1145663
that's what happens when u put degenerate bullshit in your ears
