Longboards Vs. Fixies

Two dedicated urban cults of transportation square off.

Posted on

In the one corner, we have the longboard: The over-sized skateboard favored by surfers, frattish-types and "edgy" i-bankers. In the other, the fixed-gear bike: The obsessively minimalist bike that is the standard steed of the urban hipster. One involves pedaling, one involves pushing, both are hard to bring to a stop. Who. Will. Win?
