Fixed 2 is the latest video from Charge bikes. The film follows fixed gear riders Juliet Elliot and Super Ted around the streets of London intercut with interviews with Juliet talking about the London fixed scene and what attracted her to riding without a freewheel in the first place*.
Anyway it's a cool vid really well shot and put together by Alex Rankin that gives those of us living outside of London a taste of a scene we might not hear much about. It isn't trying to be cool either which is a mighty plus - both the stars fall off attempting tricks - mastering the bike is what it is all about as Juliet explains, and if you have to fall off a few times first - so be it.
It's well worth a look so check it out for yourself in the embed below or at Chargebikes.com and it's also available as a download on iTunes.
*it was fiddling with her gears. (We didn't say it was going to be a big surprise did we?)
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
