I made myself a fixed gear conversion over my Christmas break, and had tons of fun learning to ride it for the short time I was home. When I headed back to school I shipped it to myself but the cold Michigan winter weather made it hard to get motivated to put it back together and ride again. Anyway, after much time off, I finally got it road worthy last night and went for a spin. It was great! I still have a long way to go in terms of becoming a more confident rider, but it was so great to rediscover the quite and efficient joys of a fixed gear. I'm having a blast with this! Just had to share.
