I don't get the fixi fascination other than the sleak lines and no clutter but I'd never own or ride one . As for the brain bucket I'd never not wear one when I'm on my drop bar or commuting on a busy road but I'd love to not have to wear one on designated bike paths when you are only crushing at a leasurely pace .

Sorry for the delay getting back to you.  Since the price of petrol (gasoline for us Yankees) in Denmark is better than twice the price in California (as of February, $8.22/gallon for the Danes, $3.89/gallon for the Californian), I can see why that type of bike would be popular for tradesmen in a relatively flat, compact country such as Denmark.  Not at all hard to fathom, the bike is simply something I've never seen in my part of the world.  On the other hand, I do have a bit of trouble comprehending why anyone would want to ride a "fixie" (no brakes, no free wheeling rear wheel--essentially a velodrome racing bike) on the street.  I like my brakes, and my lights, and my "skid lid."

The photo is lifted from a Danish site where they have a huge bike community , might be a bit hard for you to fathom but tradesmen use these bikes there so they are everywhere . Helmets are not compulsory in Denmark so hardly anyone uses them , however in Melbourne I use them .

Figures.  I don't proofread and misspell the very first word! Sorry, BRIAN.

Bian, quite an interesting idea.  Two advantages to the set up that I see.  First, you can see the child.  Second, you can talk to he child while riding without losing track of your riding.  It may look a bit odd, but that's just because the bike isn't normally seen

NOW, the criticsm.  Where the heck is Dad's helmet?  And the bike (and rider) appear to almost totally lack any DOT or state vehicle code required lights or reflectors.  Yeah you got brakes, but nothing else visible.

Wrestling Fight Club

This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn.  People say it's a dying sport but the popularity of MMA has really brought home the importance of wrestling as a skillset that every man needs, especially anyone interested in martial arts in general.  Hopefully this can facilitate discussion and people looking for training partners in their areaSee More
