We've heard of fixies before -fixed wheel bikes, courier kit turned into fashion items in London and NY.

To ride fixie in BRS, now that would take someone with serious hill climbing thighs, or they would have to commit to only visiting one part of the city.
This fixie rider was spotted making his way towards Cotham Hill, that is, a bit of the uphill. "It gets a bit hard sometimes" he says
As he rides off.
