    I need that low gear to get up the hills! I don't mind feathering the brake, but I loose my momentum to go over the next hill. I am sure at some point I could size up to a 46 or even 48 tooth ring,...

    I would love terrain like that! We have too many rolling hills here in Pennsylvania. 500' up and then 500' down.

    I have the Kilo Stripper. That was my first SS/FG bike. You will need to buy a freewheel as the Kilo comes with just a fixed cog. I ride it SS mostly but you can't beat the workout that FG gives you!
