Fixie Nascar

The Mini Drome is one of the smallest cycling tracks in the world. Fixed gear cyclists ride the 51 foot velodrome(Velodromes are typically 1 kilometer in length) without any brakes. The Mini Drome is pretty much a fixed gear version of Nascar.

Fixed Gear!

Who needs to coast? With a fixed gear bicycle, you can't. Not to be confused with single-speeds or multi-gear derailers, this minimalist setup is used in track racing, including Japan's Keirin. Messengers and others ride track bikes on the street (sometimes illegally without a brake): the simplicity means there's less to brake or be stolen. Not all fixies are tracks bikes though, with conversions often more focused on utility and comfort than speed. (Perfect for the commute!) They're great in the winter and offroad, too. You can make your own (you just need horizontal dropouts) and then learn some special techniques.

Trying to find a specific article on a local news station's website. Am I wrong, or are 102 links on the left navigation bar a bit much?
