02/08/2007: "Fixies on NPR"
National Public Radio has run a spot on the fixed-gear fascination, and not only is it surprisingly sympathetic and non-stupid, it even mentions suit-and-tie bike commuters who have chosen to ride fixed, as well as featuring the usual messenger interview and fashionista references.
I know that in the LA area there are plenty of older folks with regualr jobs who not only commute by bike, but ride fixed, so it was nice to see something that focussed on other than the tatoos and the danger. They didn't even diss brakeless riders, but praised their skill!
Short and worth reading (or listening to); see it at Cyclists Switch to Single Speeds
