    Actually, I used to road race when I was younger until I massacred my right knee in an over bars crash, so I later took up single speed biking, BMX and skateboarding as alternative means of slow motion self-destruction. Then about 5 years ago fixie clubs started gaining popularity in urban China and that's a natural for idiots that play BMX beyond the age of 30.

    My first fixie was a self converted Forever standard bike.

    My current fixie bike comes from people's bike/factory five which is one of the fixie clubs in Shanghai area and sponsor of lots of rides like this one.

    It's very big in Beijing because there are so many students there and like Shanghai, it's a flat urban landscape. Fixie polo is a popular sport in Beijing these days.
