That I did. Had to shim it slightly though, but its not really too much of an issue because I have the sissy bar there.
I haven't ridden it in a while though because I had to take the cranks off for use on a more practical bicycle. Once I get it back in working order I am going to do some adjusting on the fit. Right now I'm way behind the BB and I can feel it grinding my knees when I try to lock up the back wheel. I'm thinking I'll probably lower the seat a little (maybe even enough to not need the sissy bar), and put on some big tall bmx bars. As it is right now it is fun super fun to ride, but highly impractical and probably somewhat dangerous (the skidding thing). Once the position is a little more neutral I'll be able to start attempting tricks and other fun stuff!
Then again, since its fixed wheel it might turn into even more of a beast to ride because I'll need to be standing up the whole time, or kneeing myself in the jaw :O
Anyways, it will be several months before I even see that bike again so I can let the ideas simmer.
