Any suggestions/advice? I'm used to a fixed gearing system because I ride BMX, and I just want something better suited to riding distance for school and working. Multi-speeds aren't for me either, because I like to do all of my own mechanical work on bikes, and working with all the gears and especially the derailer setup doesn't really fly for me.
And what do you feel are any advantages of riding a fixed gear? Pretty much anything helps, thanks in advance!
