Nothing quite like:

1.) a low road bike bottom bracket 2.) long crank arms 3.) a fixed gear 4.) a wide road pedal 5.) a cocky first time fixie rider

all entering a fast un-banked turn... to spell imminent disaster.

I see a painful learning curve on someone's horizon. A long fall from a tall bike. I like it :-)
