Finished converting my rodie to fixie last night and decided to ride it to work this morning. Wow, it was great! I've never ridden a fixie before, so I had to get used how it worked. Totally different than was I was used to. Thank God I left me front breaks on. It took me a couple of miles to get used to stopping and more importantly, no coasting. I never realized how much I coasted before. Well, I got a nice reminder this morning, every time I wanted to coast.
It's only 11 miles to my work. Can't wait until I can take out for a longer ride, although, I definitely felt like I worked harder than usual for those 11 miles. Would be interested to see how fast I poop out on long rides.
I have one of those flip-flop hub. I'll bet riding a SS will be a blast as well. I'm gonna get a SS cog and give SS a try too.
Oh, thanks for all the help/guidance I got while I was putting my fixie together.
