I've been trying out the fixed gear setup for a few weeks now. I still sometimes forget that I can't stop pedaling and the bike rudely reminds me.
Even though this has not caused a crash or serious issue, my concern is that it easily could. Like maybe my feet could come detached and my ankles/shins get chopped up by the whirling pedals... or the pedal lifts my body and catapults me flying over the bars.
Tell me some calming stories of how you avoided fixed gear death and destruction to help ease my mind...
Or how you and everyone you know bit it big time at least once, so I can sell my bike before it's too late.
Oh, and I recently borrowed "Premium Rush" from the library... to hopefully get some helpful pointers on how to safely ride a fixed gear.
