So I decided to try fixed yesterday and love it. I keep hearing people say to practice riding a fixed in a parking lot or around the block before getting on the road because it will throw you over the handle bar. I don't think it's a problem as long as you have a front brake and remember you're riding fixed. Rode fixed for three miles and just fell in love with it lol not going back to freewheel. My question is do I really need 165mm cranks? I'm currently using Sugino RD2 172.5mm cranks at the moment and not sure if it is a good idea or worth going with shorter cranks. Any advice(s) will be greatly appreciated and happy thanksgiving to you all!
