    How many of you ride singlespeed opposed to fixed gear?

    This seems like this would be a repost question but i apparently failed to find it. Pardon me if it is.

    Anyhow, im just genuinely curious how many people ride their road or track (urban/commuter track that is) bikes in singlespeed mode opposed to fixed gear or how many people utilize both. I've ridden both but have had my bike set up as singlespeed way more often. I feel like an oddball out but its just what ive come to like, maybe just b/c of my mtb background, idk.

    Wouldn't this poll be more useful if we could compare the number of singlespeed users to fixed-gear users?

    You should add a 'Fixed-gear' field.

    EDIT: Beaten to the punch

    Too many hills around where I live. Going downhill doesn't sound fun on a fixed gear. Though I want to try it eventually, maybe when I go back home for winter break where the streets are relatively flat.

    Your poll sucks dude, but we already established that.
    Why don't you just start a new poll.
