Fixedgeargallery...of total enlightenment.

Dear Dennis,

It gives me great pleasure to finally submit a bike to fixedgeargallery. Here is my story.

Seven years ago, after discovering fixedgeargallery, I decided to build my own fixed-gear bike. I studied the gallery entries obsessively, I went to every bike shop in town, and I read every word on Sheldon Brown’s site. Still, I did not have a clear vision in my mind’s eye of what my fixed-gear bicycle should be. I needed to know more.

In 2002 I traveled to Italy in order to immerse myself in cycling’s rich culture and history. I visited the Vigorelli velodrome, I made a pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Ghisallo, and I even took part in an obscure ritual which consisted of drinking mulled wine from a cycling shoe that once belonged to Fausto Coppi. But still, I felt no closer to realizing my ultimate fixed-gear bike.

Once I recovered from the severe bacterial infection I got from Coppi’s shoe, I decided to head to Japan. I thought that perhaps the land of keirin and NJS componentry would be able to teach me what Italy had not. Unfortunately, since I was unable to speak Japanese I found the intricacies of keirin racing to be largely inscrutable. Despondent, I set about roaming the countryside. Eventually, I wound up in Nara, where I learned two things. Firstly, the famous “tame” deer that roam the town are not really tame at all—in attempting to feed one I sustained a groin injury that required a two-night hospital stay and a course of aggressive acupuncture to cure. Secondly, during a visit to a Shinto shrine that I thought was a bike shop, I discovered Zen.

Of course, I had heard of Zen before, since nearly all fixed-gear riders use it to describe the connection they feel with their bikes. However, I had always just assumed it was a kind of clipless pedal system. It turns out though that Zen is actually a complete letting-go of one’s self-consciousness that allows one to travel down the path to enlightenment, or something like that. And once I knew that, I knew that I could use Zen to help me on my own path towards discovering my inner fixed-gear.

What followed was a five-year crash course in Buddhism that took me across the entire continent of Asia. One of those years was spent observing a vow of silence, two of them were spent traveling from Lhasa to Dharamsala entirely in prostration, two more were spent in a Buddhist monastery, and three weeks were spent entirely on a toilet when I broke a fast with what turned out to be a really, really rancid cup of yak butter tea. And then, one day, during a visit to the Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya, it finally came to me as I sat under the Bodhi tree. Total fixed-gear enlightenment.

I do not agonize over whether to use an Aerospoke or a Deep V on the front, since my front wheel is the eight-spoked Wheel of Dharma. I do not worry about what color my top tube pad should be because my crotch is protected by right mindfulness. And I don’t worry about finding time to ride, because I have no job and years of spiritual exploration have rendered me completely unemployable.

As you can tell from the picture (I chose a beach shot because I don't have a record collection and I couldn't find a Buddhist-themed graffiti mural), my bike is unlike all others, and reactions to it when I show up at the bar are varied. Many are confused. Some are appreciative. And one guy just punched me in the neck. (Getting punched in the neck really hurts.) But I have been liberated from the material constraints that have prevented so many riders before me from experiencing the true joys of fixed-gear cycling. I now feel totally connected to the bike.

Really great site. Paypal on the way.

Brilliant! A classic FGG post spoof.

I was hoping to hear BSNYC take on the DKNY orange monstrosities that appeared (and thankfully dissappeared) over the weekend. I only know about them since I saw one at Bryant Park while riding uptown to meet folks for a group ride.

Bikesnob maybe you missed them since you didn't leave Brooklyn this weekend?

Jim said...

two of them were spent traveling from Lhasa to Dharamsala entirely in prostration

Hmmm. Possibly the best BSNYC post ever, in an artistic sense and as high satire. Seems to fit in the category of "art made for purpose of participating in discourse with other artists," however. Not sure if it is everybody's cup of lukewarm green tea. I really laughed hard, but then I'm an enormous dweeb and often find meta humor really amusing.

Reading today's post has allowed me to reach a new state of Nirvana - I'm now one with the spirit and the wind. My path is that of the divine (although I wish they'd pave the last few miles).

I'm now going to devote the rest of my life to The Way, I'll sell my clothes to purchase girl pants, quit drinking sports drinks and devote myself entirely to PBR so I can afford $8 coffee. I'm quitting my job so I can devote myself entirely to my new faith.

I'm also going to contract with a stone cutting company to carve me a giant BSNYC statue in hip hugger jeans so I'll be able to rub its belly for luck on the next group ride to SoHo.

That neck punch somehow loosened a tooth. The Zen master went to his dentist who explained that he has to pull it. "Let me first give you a shot of Novocaine."
"No thanks, said the Zen master. I am trying to transcend dental medication."

We're only in the second month of the new year (Chinese New Years is this Thursday - Year of the Rat!) but this Bike Snob NYC post on "total enlightenment" wins BEST OF 2008 across the entire Fixed Gear enthusiast sites. My experience is almost the same minus the punch in the neck and the fact that one doesn't reach zen, only travels towards it as zen is perfect and no mortal human is.

By the way, ending this Wednesday on ebay - the SUPER GOLD TRACK BIKE - the closest any poser is going to get to "total enlightenment."

Great Post!

Bummer about Sheldon. What was he, only 63? Sadness.

Matt in Seattle said...

I have never met Sheldon in person, but I have had a number of conversations with him on the phone while working (Harris is one of the dealerships for my bike company). He was always a good time to talk to, never overbearing or full of himself. He was witty and had a wonderfully dry sense of humor. (He once sent me an autographed picture of Lance Armstrong in the '99 Tour with Sheldon's head superimposed on Lance's body, eagle helmet and all) Sometimes I'd call just to chat it up with him for a while. His dedication to all things cycling has rarely been copied and never been duplicated. He was a good guy and I'll miss talking to him. Ride on Sheldon.

KanyonKris said...

Without Guru Sheldon, where shall we turn for enlightenment? No wonder I couldn't see the bike in the photo - the cycling spiritual realm is darkened today. Yet he lives on through his website. RIP Sheldon.

I was going to make some comment about the great Zen posting on the blog today, but I was upset to read about Sheldon Brown's passing. He really was the Tech Guru--look up the stuff on old French bikes at Harris Cyclery--but an all-around interesting and unique individual. His interest went far beyond cycling, and I enjoyed reading his personal homepage. Well, until he started keeping a journal of the effects that MS was having on him. I felt sad then, and sadder now. Smooth roads ahead, Mr. Brown.

BotchedExperiment said...

I'm pretty sure you posted the wrong picture. You might want to fix(ed) it.

Do you wear any fixed-gear specific cyling clothing while not riding that ZEN bike?

Matt Boulanger said...

Really sad about Sheldon Brown. Before I started reading his stuff a couple of years ago, I had one bike and no tools and that one bike spent a lot of time in storage and didn't work very well because I didn't know much about how to take care of it. I never would have had the confidence to build my first bike without his tutorials, and I wouldn't be communting on my bike every day either, nor would I be in the shape I'm in. I'm sure there's others out there like me whose lives he enriched.

Sheldon Brown Died!!! Last night

Anonymous said...

I decided earlier last year to get into cycling for exercise and relaxation. I got an old bike and cleaned it up then started to do some research. First, I found Sheldon Brown's website and learned more in a few hours of reading his material than I could have anywhere else. I now have eight bikes (not expensive) all of which are fun. I guess now I'm up to enthusiast level. There are many experts out there but few teachers like Sheldon Brown. He will be both missed and read for years to come.
The second cite I found was BSNYC where I continue to learn new things in an enjoyable manner although I must admit that many references are beyond my frame of reference at the present time.
Thank you to Sheldon Brown and Thank you to BSNYC for "Being There".

WTF? This guy is putting way too much thought into this whole thing. Just ride the fucking bike. Not worrying about what color your top tube pad is but worrying about finding enlightenment from riding a fixed gear is an oxymoron. Even though I feel a "zen-like" attachment to mine, I don't wrap myself around the whole concept. This guy needs a fucking job, oh wait, years of spiritual exploration has rendered him unemployable (LMFAO) -- way too much time and money on his hands. Sounds like he's the one consumed with thought -- not those who care about deep v's, which mine are nice and white, thank you!

Truly sad news about Sheldon Brown. As entertaining as bike snobbery can be at times, Sheldon Brown's apparent total lack of snobbishness, and his generosity in sharing information and encouragement were remarkable.

Snob, I've been mystified in the past by my gravitating to your posts after learning so much of the ropes from the good Dr. Brown. You are the the yin to his yang, the snake to his mongoose (really? I don't know animals).

SB had an open style and seemed to be motivated by the making cycling inclusive, sharing the hard-won style of knowledge in an easily accessible way. Reading BS is all about the shadow side of mocking and hilarity. I honestly don't know where it comes from for you, but I like to read it as the willing opposite to Sheldon's welcoming style--the universal snarkitude that spares no one and thus includes all.

Or maybe you're just an asshole who makes funny jokes. I like my version better.

Somehow fitting that the bike today would be the bike that wasn't there (or was it?). If you can't see the bike, keep looking...

Anonymous said...

I'm fairly new to cycling (just bought my first road bike last year after 20 years out of the saddle from when I was a "kid") but one of the first sites I found when I got back into riding was one of Sheldon's... can't even remember what it was about now...

So sad... I really have no opinion of the quality of the information he shared but it was obvious that he honestly cared about and was passionate for the cycling community.

We need more like him...

God speed Sheldon.

BSNYC - can we get a "black" version tomorrow (like Time does when someone dies)? Maybe a special ghost bike BSNYC-style (sure, there's no place for us to chain-up an old 10-speed painted white but I think a web ghost bike in his honor would be fitting).
