The fixed gear culture never died. It only got more concentrated. You can find the fixed gear culture strong all around you. You just have to look. This week, we got in touch with our friend Y.C. Tang over in Taipei to chat about how he got into building bikes, best places to ride, and what his current bike build looks like.

Where would you say is the best place to ride? Anywhere you want to go?

I think Taipei is the best for now because I haven't explored other cities with my bike yet. I'm very interested to ride in New York or San Francisco.

What's your current build and what do you love about it so much?

My ride is a Cinelli Vigorelli. I love the paint job and everything about it. I'm just obsessed with Cinelli ever since I started riding.
