I just love their logic. From the article:

"When Portland bike messenger Ayla Holland wants to stop, she depends
largely on her powerful leg muscles as she exerts backward pressure on
the pedals of her fixed-gear bicycle.

"I actually feel a lot more confident riding a fixed-gear because your
control over the bike is so much stronger," said Holland, 24."

Ain't NO way in hell she can stop quicker without brakes than she can
with 'em, no matter how many times she tells herself so. Repeating a
lie, or a myth, doesn't make it true.
