    Fixed across the country

    Is this feasible?

    How about SS?

    This is hypothetical. I'm not saying I think I can do it or I'm going to try it, but I have big dreams...

    In the Race Across America, the Gran Fondo Fixies do just that. They rode Salsa Casserole bikes.

    ersonally, I'd rather do it on a geared touring bike, but its certainly possible to do it SS or fixed. People have ridden penny farthings from coast to coast. I'm sure SSing accross the country is easy in comparison.

    whether you plan on camping it or credit carding it would make a huge difference.

    And of course it is possible. Though I agree with mihlbach, it would be more enjoyable on a proper bike.

    Pretty sure that one or both of them are brooks fans. I actually have one of their bikes, but swapped the saddle before it left the shop. Pretty sure the one I got had a brooks on it.
