It's well known that vegans don't have the strength or bone density required to ride fixed.

Brock began to consult health practitioner Eric Dowker. He gave up alcohol and cigarettes, and became a vegan.[10] Brock began publicly supporting and, eventually, began to fit to all Holden Dealer Team specials a device called the "Energy Polarizer" containing crystals and magnets that, it was claimed, improved the performance and handling of vehicles through "aligning the molecules".

The overwhelming majority of the Australian motoring community regarded the device as pseudoscience.[10] Brock also recommended tyre pressures of 22psi (150kPa) for his polariser-equipped vehicles, a level which many regarded as near-dangerously low. Holden, fearing the consequences of being associated with the device and a resulting breakdown in communications over Brock's plans for new models, cut ties with Brock and set up an alternative racing/modification operation, Holden Special Vehicles. During this period, Brock also became involved in the importation and even the modification of the Lada Samara, a cheap Soviet-built hatchback a world away from the high-performance V8-powered Commodores he was famous for.[11]


Yeah that's right, he did go off with the pixies there for a while.
Probably a brain fade from his new diet :lol:

Tofu, Ladas, and energy polarisers (Say What) :roll:
