Considering the same thing. Not fixed though, that's too hard out

It's not uncommon to see a few guys on fixies. If you're going to do it single, fixed makes sense.

As someone who is currently recovering from riding an inappropriate bike around a big lake I recommend going fixed :paranoid:

is there anyone who has done it fixed on here? I just got a fixie for comuting but am thinking about giving Taupo a crack later this year for the first time with a mate who wants to do the same thing.

currently im riding a 46 - 16 and i am pretty happy with it so far,

what ratio did you use? would you use the same one again?
