Track bikes originally developed for racing on banked velodromes like the one pictured. You can be out there with a few dozen other racers at times so it can get hairy. No brakes, and the bikes are fixed gear which means that while the wheel is spinning, the pedals are too.

They have always been popular with couriers and messengers and that whole subculture, but lately they have grown in popularity with everyone from wannabe hipsters to anyone who just wants a simple bike to get around and have fun on.

I converted my mountain bike(hard tail) to a single speed ment for city and tricks. I have the santa cruz super 8 for the crazy DH riding.
whoa, that super 8 is ALL old school. granted the things bob like carsons moms head but they are built like a tank (also like carsons mom).

keep the ocho though, they'll last until you snap the swingarm into pieces.

Super 8... totally old school, majorly beefy. They are no V10 or Demo, but they pedal OK for what they are.

So there are some riders here eh, maybe I'll start a 'pic of your bike(s)' thread.
