I live in South Florida, home to one of the only velodromes in the south east USA Brian Piccolo. So after reading on SS/Fixed gear section of this forum a lot I thoght I should go to the velodrome and rent a fixed gear and try it. I got one of my buddies that big into Mt. biking to come with me and try it out. It took a lot of getting used to, the whole not coasting and no brakes thing. When we got that down there was no stopping us. We were having a blast.
the bike I rented for $5
