Track bikes is what the pictured guys would call them.

Fixie is hipster talk, they made a scene with them but they've moved on to other things now like artisanal wood chopping.

My riding clothes look about like what those guys have on. My shorts have a pad (chamois) and my shirt wicks sweat. You can dress to ride without dressing like a clown.

I asked if I could have some of the negatives and he said "help yourself, kid".
I took about 500 and, yet, thousands went to the dump before I got there.
But...I did get 500.....
All 80 square inch negatives, too....

Do you recall the adress in Rampart from where the photo was taken. Alvarado and 7th street area?

Yes track bikes or fixed wheel as opposed to freewheel, I dragged one home from the dump as a kid and rode it to school in spite of it's poor cornering and occasionally throwing me when the pedal hit the ground or a kerb because it was a 'racing bike'.
Fixie seems to be used to describe single speed or 'fixed gear' by those too young to know they're murdrering another perfectly good distinction.
