Track bikes are track bikes, and are designed to be ridden on tracks like velodromes. Not designed to be ridden on roads...

Yes they have fixed gears, and generally no other means of braking... If you are skilled you can negotiate traffic etc in a city on a track bike, which is where the fashion fixie trends have come from... Fashion Fixies are not track bikes tho!!

The bars are now illegal (f**k you very much Mr UCI and your stupid 3:1 ruling) and are now an expensive paper weight.
