Ok, yesterday I took my fixie out for it's inaugural spin. It's an old 1985 Gitane Tour de France frame that I put some Mavic Open Pro rims on with updated headset and Cinelli bars. looks good. Anyway, I have no problem with one speed, seems so easy to ride, but boy did I miss coasting, especially at intersections. When I approach an intersection, ,with pedestrians and dog walkers, joggers, little kids wandering around, I instinctively stoop pedaling and scope out the intersection looking for a clear path. I almost got bolted out of my saddle several times when I stopped pedaling.
I'm seriously thinking of changing out to a single speed freewheel instead. Any thoughts on this?
