"Le 'Fixie' Hits The Steets"

French quality newspaper Le Monde published yesterday an article on fixed gear bikes and the scene in Paris. 

It's a nice and informative piece of writing which I liked a lot because this is probably the first an article on the fg phenomena on a major newspaper ever which does NOT make a huge deal out of the fact that the 'fixie bikes' don't often have brakes. It's mentioned for sure, but in a very casual way. Fixed gear bikes are track bikes and track bikes don't have brakes, simple as that. I like that. 

Thanks for Yann G for posting the article (click the pic to make it bigger...).
