As the culture grows, fixed gear cycling is spreading all over the world. Just like any other extreme sport, it started out small and is rapidly growing and always progressing. Yesterday I was browsing around the internet and came across an article about Natooke bike shop. Earlier this month Natooke became the first fixed gear bike shop in China. The shop was founded by the famous German fixed gear acrobat Ines Brunn. Business isn't booming by any means but at the same time more and more people are experimenting with a fixed wheel. Could China be the next fixed gear Japan? Not likely, but with the fixed gear culture growing at such an exponential rate, who knows.

Keep an eye out for more Chinese fixed gear and read full article in the Global Times
