It's important to have the right gear when your biking, ultimately fix gear biking has been quite a popular movement and parralel to that is a number of bike riders who ride irresponsibly. This is not fixed gear bike riding, which can be a safe fun experienece for anyone. We would recommend not removing back breaks and wearing proper safety gear such as bike helmets and maybe even protective pads!
Free riding is part of the fixedgear movement no doubt, but especially if your a bicycle messenger or courier you will know drivers tend to have a habbit of not necsessarily agreeing with the spirit of a freerider. Don't get caught out and end up in hospital, get some decent cool gear. Biking gloves are another one which splits opinion - should you avoid the excess few grams or go down the mountain biker route and stick some protective gloves on?
