Fixed Gear Bikes Go HOOD with BlocBoi Fame – Disrespectful

Right when you thought Scraper Bikes was one of the most hood bike videos, along comes BlocBoi at full speed with no shirt and no gears. What does this mean for fixed gear biking? Well a lot has changed since the tight pant wearing hipsters of yesteryear were the only ones on these bikes.  One thing stays consistent; Tattoos are extremely cool, and the more you have the cooler you are.  FACT.   What would make this guy ever so slightly cooler is if he was slappin’ a Boombot like a real O.G.

what is a fixed gear bike?

The biggest characteristic of a fixed gear is that the rear gear (cog) is locked on the hub.  This means you can’t be lazy and coast.  You must keep pedaling with the speed of the bike.  Often times fixed gear bikes are preferred for urban commuting because there are minimal parts, low maintenance, and overall sexy looks.  Some riders that don’t use brakes on the bike rely on locking the rear wheel up to stop.  This involves being comfortable leaning over your bars and putting most of the weight on the front tire.  We recommend wearing a grill when doing this.  It’s cool.
