    if you want a bike strictly for freestyling, a bmx bike is the way to go. But if your going to be biking long distances for transportation and still want a bike that can still do tricks, get a single speed fixed gear bike.

    Single speeds and fixed gears are completely different. If you want to get a freestyle fixie don't. Buy a BMX bike and ride the shit out of it. You will find it easier when doing cool things on it. As far as BMX bikes being harder to commute on it is true. But stop being fucking lazy and just ride the thing.

    It is funny you say that. I asked my girlfriend if she thought oriental was derogatory... she said no. I still think it is.

    Haha. Well to be completely accurate Tarck can apply to any type of bike but pretty much ALWAYS applies to goddamn fixed gear bikes with bmx sensibilities.
    I'm still having a really hard time wrapping my head around the whole thing. Like everytime I see a "fixie trick" it's a rehashed bmx trick that was perfected 25 years ago on the right kind of bike.

    Let me illustrate:

    Watch this

    Now tell me, when the hell are the trick track kids gonna be doing stuff at this level? Probably never. It's like trying to do kickflips on a longboard. Even if you land one you're still fucking retarded.
    Ride however you want to, but don't get butt hurt when you get laughed at for being silly assed :)

    Very true. The Volume fixed gear frame is made in Taiwan.

    i'm glad these responses came out. i thought i was the retarded one thinking that bmx tricks belonged on bmx bikes. i guess it is the same reason why we all used to laugh at aggressive in-line skaters - fruitbooters - when i used to skateboard. They looked like tools, and everone knew it.

    i didn't want to say it out-loud and/or high jack a thread or something, but since other people feel the same, i want to thank you all for confirming my sanity.

    I am pretty sure Oriental now refers to rugs and other inanimate objects and not people.
