I decided to go fixed, for at least the winter, here in Little Siberia. I just put a deposit down for a Rollo, with a newly built back wheel, rack on the back, and Nokia studs in front. I want to have an enjoyable 6.5 mi ride to work each day, cutting across local lakes, if time and weather allow. This year I could afford to scrap the above deal, and spend twice as much on a Surley with just about anything I want on it. Next year who knows? Next year, my wife would flip out if she found out that I bought another fixed gear bike. So given what I want it for, does anybody have any thoughts or opinions? I'll have to talk to the good people at the bike shop, pretty quick, if I want to do something different.
