Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

You know that you want to use a fixed gear for track standing on a flat surface, right? If you are trackstanding that freewheel bike in the pool, you have far better balance than I do I can track stand a freewheel bike for MAYBE 15 seconds.

Any pavement with a slight rise is a good place to learn how to trackstand, that pool isn't a good place
