What is this trend about fixed gear bikes all about? ?

My friends are all indie hipsters and they all have or are getting fixed gear bikes. I'm getting a bike, but i'm probaly getting a 12 speed or 10 speed vintage 80s bike... Why the sudden demand for fixed gear bikes? I would think it would be harder to get across the city and tougher to navigate in... show more My friends are all indie hipsters and they all have or are getting fixed gear bikes.
