everyone's on a fixie these days, but what city loves 'em the most?

using google trends you can see how many people are googling 'fixed gear' versus 'single speed' - apparently 'single speed' gets more searches, and the term has apparently been in google's 'lexicon' longer than 'fixed gear'.

top three cities that google 'fixed gear':

1) portland, or
2) renton (just south of seattle), wa
3) madison, wi

i had no idea madison was a fixie city, but it must be. portland and seattle are no surprise.

as a side-note, when comparing 'bicycle, cycling, and bike', bike is the clear winner.
