How many of you guys and gals commute on your fixies? I may have to start and Im wondering what are good things to have/bring/outfit your bike with.
The bike is a Nishiki conversion, the rear is a Deep V laced to a Nahsbar fixed fixed hub, shadow conspiracy chain, and the stock crank/double rings.
the front is whatever quickrelease was on the bike when I got it. Something old, and it makes a lot of noise...
I have a front brake and some chopped bullhorns.
What would you suggest to help out my commute? Its 12 miles each way, the only really hilly part is the last mile on my way home. Right now im running 42/17. But that is subject to change once I get new cranks.
thanks a lot!
