I have a single speed road bike. Frame by Pure Fix Cycles (purefixcycles.com), wheelset by ZeroLite, a Serfas Rx seat, and custom modified bullhorn-cut noodle bars. I have a Gossamer 50t front chainring and a 16t freewheel. I get beef from fixie riders because it's not a fixed gear, and i get beef from road riders because it's not a full carbon road bike with a 10 speed cassette. I keep up well with my roadie roommate at an average mph of 23, but i'm shunned by both groups. Where do i fall? Roadie or fixie? Or did i unintentionally create my own classification of rider? How do you feel about it?
