  1. You miss the point... the author should not blame fixie bikes on accidents. She should blame wreckless and inattentive people on accidents. Ultimately that could mean accidents caused by bikes, cars and/or pedestrians. Being stupid is probably a bigger cause of accidents than the type of bike you ride or car you drive.

  2. Motorcycle accidents can really be fatal since your body isn't protected against collisions. He must have worn his helmet, so the damages were not that severe. Well, that's a big lesson he had to learn the hard way, I guess. Keep on making music, Gyptian!
