TheFiXFiXFiX is a project by a self-described wannabe photographer who says:

I’d like to explore the use of bicycles in today’s culture as not only a method of transportation, but as fashion accessories, art, and even objects of lust.

The website is still in the works, so check out their Flickr galleries in the meantime.

    This is absolutely terrible. There is nothing awesome about these pictures. If the girls were doing cool tricks like skidding or riding backwards, it might be worthwhile. This is more of the same – superficiality to the MAX.

    One of the pictures has the caption:

    “Angry dudes lamenting over the commercialization of their beloved fixed gear culture.”

    This website would only contribute to that. Blatant exploitation masking itself as art. The girl with ice cream was smiling, because that was the only meal she’s had all week.

    My question is if they are paid models or actual bike riders.

    Some of the pics are good, but they don’t have anything to do with the bicycle’s role in culture. Its just cute girls with bikes as props in nudie pics.

    Cute girls on bikes as props in nudie counts as fashion accessories/objects of lust. I’d wack off to it.

    This is really cliché in it’s objectification of women. Your “I Love Riding in the City” is much more original and empowering for men and women alike.

    American apparel meets momentum, barely concealed soft porn with little to no artistic value, does not showcase the women or the bikes.

    I have several complaints. The first deals with the age bracket of the subjects. Most models don’t look more than twenty years old, if that. Also, most of the models are only average-looking at best.

    It looks like someone told most of them at some juncture during shoots to just remove their tops or something. It really doesn’t matter to me that most models have small breasts. What does matter to me, is the manner in which their breasts are displayed. I think I would get more out of the photography from a sensual point of view, if the models wore suggestive, or just slightly revealing clothing. The graphic seemingly impromptu uncovering of their naked bodies, just appears to be lacking of good taste.

    Of course, it might be just their apparent ages too!

    I say, get prettier girls, and have them wear more sheer and exotic clothing, like the one who rides the red Fuji, has gold pumps on, and is wearing sexy hosiery with some kinda swim suit, or something.

    All of the girls should have nice-looking nails and have their faces painted a little (just to cover up blemishes). They could at least wear lipstick.

    I realize that the fixie hipster look is suppose to encompass the hard edgey look, but darn…They should at least look appealing, if they’re not natural beauties.

    A few of these models look like transgenders…

    “A few of these models look like transgenders…”

    You say that as if it’s necessarily a bad thing. Some of the most beautiful women I’ve met were born men.

    Nope! Not at all…It was just an observation, Ed! :-)

    After further study of this site, I still contend that the models should look a little more mature, just to be on the safe side…

    Fortunately though, there are more attractive ones here than what I had originally thought. However, they would look even more attractive if they’d just smile.

    They would look even more attractive if they looked closer to thirty than twenty. Most of these girls look like jail bait!

    Then again, maybe it’s just me!
