    So for my Internal Assessment for my IB Math Studies class (borrrrrring) I need to do something in which i collect raw data via a survey/poll and prove something mathematically.

    My topic is to find out if having brakes on a fixed gear is dependent on age.
    I know the answer is obvious and its a fairly stupid topic, but my teacher was all over it.
    I just need to know if you ride your fixed gear with brakes or brakeless and your age. If you have brakes please specify 1 or 2 brakes.

    I would be SOUPAR stoked if I got a lot of responses!
    Thanks in advance!

    Good luck on your IB work. Shit sucks while you're doing it, but once I got to college I found that the hard work was worth it.
    I too know the pain of having to collect large amounts of data from strangers. I sympathize with you. At least you got to pick the topic.

    21 / front brake

    And may I say I am pleasantly impressed no one has typed breakless yet :)

    I commute and train on this bike in MA, steep climbs included.

    37/no brakes
    50, front brake only. i have a 20-year-old son who rides a fixed-gear crosscheck with front and rear brakes (avid cantis, he built this bike up while working a at a shop).

    so far i do not see an "obvious" answer in these data. good luck!
