Benotto fixie:


Contrast that bike basher's work with the loving and very skilled work of the Sanson mechanic:

Not a fixie or a pro bike, but ruined just the same. This was the same bike ridden by one of cycling's greatest riders:


His name is Roger de Vlaeminck. He's four times a winner of cycling's greatest race:

What what bitchin bike that was. And that fixie fuck asshole ruined it.

As I was scrolling down the page and saw "For Han" and "For Matt Kendrick", I thought for a brief moment that I might see my name, but then right away thought that Battaglins don't have enough street cred for these fixie fucks and there's really no chance that I'd see my name with a Battaglin fixie build. Then a split second later, there it was.

What a douche. Even an unknown bike like a Battaglin isn't safe from these meatheads.

When I see these builds, it reminds me of the way a dog looks when its owner puts a jacket on it so that they feel better about taking the dog out in the cold:



There is a proud animal underneath that crap, but you can see the shame on it's face. The same is true with these road bike fixie builds.

Unfortunately there is a crap load of these out there. Just image google any great frame maker's name and "fixie" and the visual vomit begins. I don't understand the fixie mentality.
