Title: Crazy Fixed Gear
Post by: Pete Jackson on October 04, 2013, 04:19:01 PM
The attached image got me thinking: are there any weird fixed installations in the northeast? A fixed bench hanging in midair? A bed as a bivvy ledge?

Not that I encourage these kinds of things (I think they suck, actually), but it'd be good to know.

There used to be a plywood structure called the "space station" on Liquid Sky.    Many of Paul Ross' "bolts" also qualified as "crazy fixed gear," I remember a bunch of hammered in things that looked like hardware store screws on the first pitch of the Prow.  They were crap, but they did hold falls on a slab as I made sure to test them.
