I know this is a personal choice, but thought I'd ask anyway. I haven't ridden at all in a number of years and never a fixed or ss. The bike shops I talk to say start with a ss freewheel set up, get comfortable with it, and go to fixed if that's what I want. Sounds like good advice, but I'd rather just skip the freewheel and go straight to fixed. I'm interested in everyone's advice here. Thanks.
