For 99% of the population, the idea of riding a fixed gear bike—which doesn’t offer the most efficient braking capabilities—through the streets of any city is pure madness. But have you heard about free-coasters? These BMX-derivatives lack any brakes whatsoever and truly are “the moral and physical opposite of a fixed-gear bike.” Amazingly, the crazy kids ride ’em around without killing themselves, and do tricks too, fun. But still, it should be noted, that no one can fuck with Kamikaze cyclist Ted Shred, who for the last few years has basically combined a free-coasting drivetrain with a fixed frame and ridden it down very big hills. You might be wondering how he stops? With his feet acting as brake pads. |Pinchflatnews|
