episode 201: Service Course | Fix up

In this episode of Service Course, Tom Whalley looks back on the fixed gear phenomenon, which peaked around a decade ago, and asks what happened to fixie culture.

He speaks with Max Leonard, co-author of Fixed, former bike messenger Emily Chappell, and Tibco-SVB’s Tanja Erath.

Tanja came into pro-cycling through the Zwift academy, but before that she started making waves racing in fixed gear criteriums, notably the much missed Red Hook series. Tanja talks about the benefits of riding fixed and how she hopes to be able to ride fixie crits as part of next year’s race calendar.
