In The News
The Chicago Tribune ran an article recently on the no brakes urban hipster thing. You can read it and watch the video here. I'm neither urban nor hip but I ran my Apollo fixed gear conversion sans brakes for most of this year (just added a front brake recently) and did not feel that I was a menace to society in any way. But then I wasn't doing any trick riding nor was I cruising with a pack. To each his own I guess. I'm just happy to see young people on bicycles for whatever reason. Trends and fads come and go but once the bike bug bites, one tends to stay bit.
