So I just flipped my hub on my Redline 925 to fixed. I had my expectations, but I was pretty surprised at what I experienced. I had to resist so many impulses to coast, and sometimes I'd act on one of those impulses, and would be carried away by the pedal force. I live in Berkeley, and I bike to campus. Sometimes I have to avoid people in some of the more populated squares on campus (ex. Sproul Plaza). Normally I coast, and I switch pedal positions according to which direction I need to weave in to pass by peopole. Except now, I forgot that I had to keep pedaling, and its really hindering my turning ability.
It was all really a shock to me, and I'm sure it'll get better once I get used to it. Also, I'm using toe clips, does anyone recommend clipless instead, considering the hills at Berkeley?
