With two of the most influential fixed free riders in Japan at the Moment (Tom Lamarche and Ed wonka) as well as the quest for inspiration on a new bike I’m working on, Ive been trawling a lot of Japanese Fixed footage. This Video shows how killer those cats are becoming  as well as another way to look at building a fixed gear bike for this style of riding.

Who’s got thoughts on riding a 29r Frame with 700c wheels?
