the YEAR of the MOUNTAIN from Fixed Realities on Vimeo.
We ride our single speed bikes as high into the mountains as possible. With each pedal stroke, we leave our problems behind as we are greeted with the most excruciating pain, a wanting to give up. Once we reach the top, calmness sinks in and the mind and heart is set at peace. It’s not until the descent that we realize what we have lost as we rapidly head back into reality.
This video is dedicated to my friend Xiao Yu who recently passed away in a horrific accident (non-bike related). He was too young and had not even lived life yet. He was a bike messenger with the company Prodorapid before moving on to Skunk Messenger. He had a love for riding bikes and was one of the first people in Taiwan to push me as a rider. We will miss you. Rest in peace.
Glad to hear that fixie is getting popular in Taiwan. I am more than happy to share my fixie with your site. Attached are the photos and information.
Start off with an old Raleigh frame. Stripped off the old paint, and repainted the entire frame with off white with pearl finish and champagne gold. Replaced with Selle San Marco Batavus Saddle, MKS Sylvan Track Gold Pedals, Weinmann DP18 wheelset and Vittoria Zaffiro Pro II tires.
check it out! I hope you like it! I customized the seat myself.
I’m Tri from Los Angeles, CA USA. I wanted to share my commuter fixie with all of you. I bought it brand new thinking I was never going to change anything out, but now I can’t stop personalizing it. Keep up the good work!
