    This is my fixie. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    My fixie is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

    My fixie, without me, is useless. Without my fixie, I am useless. I must ride my fixie true. I must go faster than my enemy who is trying to outdistance me. I must outdistance him before he outdistances me. I will...

    My fixie and myself know that what counts in this war is not the miles we ride, the noise of the noise of angry car drivers yelling at us, nor the skitmarks we leave on the streets. We know that it is the final destination that count. We will arrive...

    My fixie is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its crankset. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my fixie clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...

    Before God, I swear this creed. My fixie and myself are the defenders of my streets. We are the masters of my enemy. We are the saviors of my life.

    So be it, until the streets are ours and there is no single car left, but peace!

    Transition Bottlerocket. Freeride / DH / Slopestyle killer. I live on Vancouver Island and ride the North Shore and Whistler a fair bit each year as well as travel to BC's interior now and then for some new trails.
