  1. […] once the video was up, it spread like gangbusters. Blogs. Forums. Twitter. 25,000 people saw it on YouTube. Eventually people all ended up at MASH and […]

  2. The guys who went to Austin are from MASH. They are a collective of riders from San Francisco. They did a film and are quite well known.

    No doubt this will be part of one of their next videos.

  3. That’s a shame. Maybe you would have stopped in time if you had a front brake!

  4. I saw this at Lance’s bike shop (mellow johnny), what I can’t understand is, who are this guys, and why did he rode with them in Austin (where I live) instead of the local bike messengers, I assume they are messengers somewhere, but they could be your average fixie that never did a mile as a messenger. We have a lot of them around here, they look like a messenger, carry a bag, ride a fix bike (on a road frame sometimes), have carbon wheels like they where 50 bucks and do tricks on them at the stop light or if there is a large group of girls walking or something like that, not all of them of course, but enough that it has a name, possengers.
    I rode a fix gear in Chicago in 99, it was a really nice benotto frame i got in mexico, I still have the phil wood rear hub, the frame I crashed with the L train pillar when an other biker came from behind the pillar in the wrong way, there were only three options at the time, since I was going pretty fast skidding was not going to cut it. On the right there was a car going the same speed as me, on the front there was a guy coming at me pretty fast, and on the left was the pillar next to a huge truck that was park there making it impossible to go thru the other side of the pillar. I chose to crash against the pillar, all of this while I was skidding, seemed like the best choice, ended up on top of my front wheel which I sort of still had on the rubber, then me and bike fell on the floor. The bent front triangle of the bike put the front wheel against the tube so that was the end of my track bike, lasted me about a year and a half. Since then and before then I have always used gears and brakes. Its very help full on the climbs.
