Ich fahre ja viel Rad gerne schnell und leider häufig durch die Innenstadt, aber ich hänge zu sehr an meinem Leben, als dass ich das so tun würde wie Cooper Ray, der als Fahrradkurier aufm Fixie ohne Bremsen in New York unterwegs ist.
Also the bike Cooper is riding is a track bike made for racing at a velodrome, it is a fixed gear bike with no brakes and no freewheel. Which means the rear wheel drives the pedals, so as long as the bike is moving the pedals are turning.
To all those who think this form of riding is reckless and dangerous, I agree, but that does not change the fact people all over the world ride like this every day, Terry just wanted to say “everyone crashes from time to time, even with brakes, we believe staying focused and aware of your surroundings is the best way to stay safe and having no brakes forces you to be in the present. These videos aren’t made to encourage bad cycling, so please ride at your own risk and skill level.
