It’s been awhile since I’ve ridden fixed gear, been even longer since I rode track and seems a lifetime ago that I played polo with just that one gear and no brakes.
I still love the feeling you get from riding fixed and have a vintage English track frame that one day I’ll build back up for those casual summer road rides. But for now, my riding focus is still on single speed set ups.
However, when it comes to following track racing, there is nothing more inspiring than seeing how a track rider approaches their discipline, both on and off their fixed gear bikes.
Here are series of films which give a great insight into such mindsets….inspirational.
