New emerging class of bikers.

Wheels of Happiness

It used to be just roadies and mountain bikers. (MTB)  But there is a new emerging class of riders:

1. The fixies   They are growing in numbers (despite the apparent dangers) and they come with fluorescent colored bikes and sometimes racing with traditional roadies

2.  The cyclocross.  I would be one of them.  They have road bike frames handle bars but have MTB gears changers.  They would have typically gears up to 11 to 36.   They would have doubles for cranks and even triplets (I have triplets in front)  They ride roads, but go to places only fitted to MTB.

So there are now four classes of bikers
