Why I want to go fixed at 50

I am looking at getting a fixie. Wonder why? Watching Chris Akrigg just having fun on fixie pretty much sums it up for me.

One gear No idea from chris akrigg on Vimeo.

and the bike on the radar is a 2010 Masi Speciale Ultimate (bike in the foreground) which retails for around $2,000 in Australia.  Question is, can I really justify $2,000 for a play bike?

 

The other fixie being considered is the Charge Plug Racer which sells for around $1,000 from Wiggle in the UK.
