What is the advantage of a fixed gear bike over a single speed with coaster or rim brake, or a multi gear bike? I'll never go fixed, since I like to be able to coast at times, (and I like brakes) but I would like to know what the advantages/perceived advantages are for the fixed gear bike.
Yes, I expect to be cussed out, ridiculed, insulted, and etc. for asking but if I don't ask, how am I to learn? Besides, I have been cussed out, ridiculed, insulted, and etc. for 53 of my 54 years, so will be nothing new.
