I moved to Philly from Pittsburgh a little more than a year ago, and long story short - some doors close, other doors open - there's a better than average chance I'll be moving back soon...within a month.
The problem is, I never rode fixie in Pittsburgh...I started in Philly about 7 months ago. For all of you who are unaware, Philly is dead flat, and Pittsburgh, as you know, is, um, not. The extent of my PGH cycling is the occasional spin around the neighborhood on my old BMX. About 8 years ago, I rode Critical Mass a few times on it, and it made me want to kill myself.
Should I dial down my chainring? Start popping glucosamine like an addict? What am I in for?
