Almost daily occurrence: come up behind rider on a single-speed bike, no rear brake. "Must be a fixie" thinks I, only for the rider to coast up to the lights. I wonder if they realise that the whole 'no back brake' really only applies to fixed, not free. Just hope they don't need to stop in a hurry!
Don't start the 'which brake stops you' brigade
