I've got my flip flop wheelset with a freewheel waiting on the other side. I've ridden fixed exclusively because I've never had brakes. All of a sudden, I find myself very curious what it's like to ride my bike singlespeed, I've never done that before, unless you count my other coaster brake bike. I want to see how far I can roll. I want to test my bearings.
However, I am afraid to let brake pads touch my pretty ($$$) wheels with bad weather.
What would you guys do?
p.s. I've already got the calipers, cables and levers, would just like to get new pads for them.
