    Why ride fixed?

    i ride SS and i see people with flip flop hubs that rarely or never use the SS side and i have always wondered why would you ride fixed? the only thing i can come up with is not coasting but thats not even that cool. SS is just way more fun

    I have a friend with a Langster who's never seen the fixed side too. I don't think he gets it.
