Just Skidding is the latest series of cycling prints from 100Copies.
The series pays homage to the fixed-gear bike culture, wherein no fewer than 6825 pictograms make up the image of two fixie riders skidding in synchronicity.
Like all of the 100Copies series, Just Skidding is limited to just a run of 100 prints.

A bicycle without brakes? Not kidding.
Welcome to the world of fixies. A bicycle stripped down to its barest, purest form, with no gears and no brakes. Riding becomes intuitive as the fixie responds to your every movement, every shift in weight of your body.
This artwork features two riders skidding in synchronicity – a braking technique that can only be achieved with a fixie.
The image is formed out of thousands of tiny fixies (6825 to be exact), each painstakingly put into place by the artist. As an ode to the first bike ever invented, the tiny fixies with different wheel profiles are crafted in the actual dimensions of a fixed-gear bike.
This is for all fixed-gear riders who never stop pedaling.
