So, I've been looking at fixed geared bikes alot lately, and the more I look at them, the funner they seem. I think it would be something I would enjoy, and I would get one in a heartbeat, if I lived in a city. However I live in a very rural area and I'm wondering if a fixed gear bike would be really practical for anything.
Right now, I commute about 11 miles each way over rolling hills on my road bike. Some hills are still tough WITH gears, even though I've gone over them a billion times. So, in short, do any of you commute through long stretches of hilly terrain on your fixed gear bikes?? If so, how do you like it? Is it faster/slower than a geared bike?
Should I get one, and just not use it for commuting, but for fun rides? (although I do much more commuting than riding purely for fun)
What do you all think??
