People who have never tried a fixed gear, will not understand what is special about it.
Once they try, an opinion is possible and an eventual switch from gears to fixed wheel.
Of course, not everyone will like the fact that riding such bicycle requires more anticipation and attention than a standard road bike.
Our Society/World has something for everyone. Forget the stereotypes of who does what. This is also applicable for riding fixed gear bikes.
Raechel Harding‘s short film about girls on fixie in Melbourne (Australia), shows us that yes indeed… girls too can ride such bicycles and this is not just a male thing!!!
Strangely, people (like to) assume that such or such activity/job is more for men than women and vice-versa.
Time to be open minded – categorizing is so 20th century.
