Casio and Jeremiah fuckin' boo-ba.

Sorry boys, the title was Brett's idea, not mine. For most people riding a fixie, the progression goes something like this: curiosity is aroused, gears come off bike, bike is ridden as singlespeed for sometime, courage builds up, freewheel is swapped for fixed cog, and viola! a fixed gear convert is born. These two bought some second hand track bikes off trade me and in doing so took the direct route to the dark path of hardcore of fixed gear riding. Twitchy track geometry and strictly brake-free (you couldn't fit one if you wanted to), their bikes are as purist fixed wheel as you get. These guys make regular appearances at On Yer Bike now, so while they're still alive Bretto figured we should post some pictures of their bikes. Here's Casey's Colnago:



And a below the nipples view of Jermiah and his as yet unknown ride:



I'll leave you with a quote from Casey, which seems to have become the pair's motto: "brakes are a sin". Nice work fellas. Stay alive.

i'm part of the brakeless thing rather than the fixie craze, my BMX is brakeless, figure my fixie should be too, at least you can stop it if you need to unlike the 20"...
