This news just in from Berlin (and from Straightchain, danke):
"For the first time the police will have an eye on a special kind of bicycle. They are called "Fixies" or "Singlespeed-Bikes". These minimalist trend-bikes, e.g. ridden by bike-messengers and members of a growing fan-scene are being used more and more in city-traffic. The bicycles, for the purpose of saving weight and conveying a very special "Kick" during fast riding, do not have proper security-measurements, i.e. they lack any sort of brake. Only foresighted riding, and enormous capacity of reaction ought to hinder accidents. The use of such vehicles, which were originally designed to be used for track-bike sports, in road traffic is profoundly dangerous and inevitably bound to health- and live-threatening situations for other road-users as well as the rider. In consequence, police will not only file a complaint against the riders of such fixies, but make insistently clear, that the bicycles will be seized after reoccurring identification."
Uuh, I'm scared now, because I will be in Berlin, on my brakeless fixie, in the end of May.
Don't actually know if the Berlin 5-0 rides a Segway, though...
