Fixed gear or Single Gear?

Since I don't have a flip-flop hub... Instead, it's a suicide complete with Loctite and a bottom bracket lockring. Oh, and a brake. But don't hate me, it's only until I find a new wheelset in my price range!
I like the flip-flop. I get to switch to a single speed for days that I don't want to ride fixed. Some days your just lazy and want to coast.. :)

Well I actually want a flip flop hub, but my wheel set it worth more then my bike and I don't want to mess with it. Single speed for now.
seeing as I have three fixed gears and two single speeds mmm yeah fixed

Please, I posted Other just for the option, what does it mean by Other?

Maybe other is taking a fixed-fixed hub and putting a freewheel on one side or both

I just say yes and some geared bikes too.

Tried to return to a fixie after 25 years (used to train on one in winter), and I don't like it. SS for me, please. Enough time has passed that I naturally stop pedaling for certain things, and a freewheel suits me better than FG.
