Obv neckbeard lol, the only fa bike is vintage racers.
>>
road bikes without drop bars are so fucking clean

hard to ride fast though, friction shift and on the downtube

99.9% of the cycling population should stick to indexted STI shifters

since falling and hearing your chain rattle to shit/have it fall off while you walk your bike home isn't /fa/ no matter how clean your bike looks
>>
a bike is inherently not effay if it's not a fixie im sorry op
>>
>>9536258

>>9534160
bikes should be functional in the first place.

Firefly fabrications, from Boston iirc

If you got your pic, then it's like a 4/10 on aesthetic

10/10 is vintage road bike converted to fixie. Leather wrapped bull handles, no brakes.

Brakes. Pfft. Fixxies are the most effay type of bikes.

What

Ppl who react like this don't understand the difference between a fixie and freewheel

I don't get how people can ride when the seat is that much higher than the handlebars

does your back not ache
>>
>>9536892
you can't really tell from a grainy cellphone pic

you can thread free wheels on and off

but most fixed gears adapted for street use have a free wheel on the unused hub side rather than a different cog since nobody fucing races here

>>9536839
don't trust a bike brand who can't take a proper product shot
>>
>>9537213
it means they need a larger frame
>tfw manlet and the vintage biachi frame is too big for me
I can ride it if the seat is all the way down
>>
>>9536570
>friction shift and on the downtube
>having your chain fall off
Nigga what? If you set up your derailers, shifters and chain length properly there is literally no reason for the chain to be falling off.
Also that crankset absolutely ruins the look of the bike in your pic.
>>
just copped 29er, that's propably not too /fa/ but then again I need to commute with it during winters in snow and slush.

So no riding your bike if it rains/if it has rained in the last 24 hours/if it snowy/if its wet/whatever? Where do these people live?

>>9538255

I'm just envious of the places where you can wear long pants outside of winter

Is my bike /fa/?
It's a vintage 1954 Schwinn I found in an old barn and restored.
I'm a girl btw, so yes it looks gay.
>>
>>9538371
Looks like it weights about 50 pounds and is huge burden to ride.
>>
>>9537213
what are you 50 years old??

>>9538111
>>
>>9538330
why road pedals? It looks more like a grocery bike than a club/racer, and road shoes are a bitch to walk in
