After posting that bit below about fixed trick styles i wandered on over to Mr. Watson’s place.
Low and behold…a pretty damn similar post about riding styles. Theres been a lot of buzz about this as of late so not too surprising we want to hear about it. Heres a snippet from his post:
“Now with a lot of people in Tokyo riding DJ bikes with 700c wheels and slammed saddles fixed, the debates have been stirred up again and it begs for more conversation. “Fixed style” is easily branching off into a lot of segments. Park riding, parking lot riding (techy flatland) and street riding (gaps, stairs, etc). Soon I think the bikes will evolve more to fit those preferred riding. Actually, they have already. Some people prefer smaller tires, some prefer bigger tires. Just one example. Does a slammed saddle keep you from riding the bike around? Probably not. Does it keep you from riding around comfortably? Again, debatable. One thing is for sure though, Kozo almost has flat tailwhips and he 360’d a pyramid with ease on his. Is it the bike or the rider? In my opinion, both.”

Strap Ons are a highly adjustable and hard wearing strap system for everything from fixed gear freestyle riding to everyday use. Designed from the ground up as an alternative to double straps and cages, the Strap Ons achieve maximum usability without compromising the feel of the ride.
