02/03/2008: "Fixies & Faces"
, 2008, the Rogue Status gallery in Venice, on the wild western edge of the city, held an exhibition of fixed-gear bicycles called "Maximal Reduction, Minimal Boundaries." Hundreds of riders showed up for the opening--everyone from old farts like your editor here to the hip & high--sometimes literally high, on the inevitable tallbikes.
There were good measures of music, conviviality, good-natured rowdiness, tattoos, and bikes and riders of every sort. Take a look at the moment at Fixies & Faces
now--then go for a ride!
