Took my first extended fixed ride tonight (15 miles) and gotta say that was one of the most enjoyable rides I've been on in a long time! I've been a "roadie" for a long time and have been looking at ss/fg for a while as a way to commute and save gas. I was riding my road to and from work 3 times a week. I found a "state bike co" "blue bazoo" on CL for $170 and grabbed it. I gotta admit I was a bit nervous riding fixed but after a few warm up rides I took to it nicely. Smooth as can be and comfortable! I'm a few mph off my roadie speed but it's worth it. Anyway, just wanted to share and say "hey!"
