So I just recently switched to fixed and have been riding on fixed for about a week now. First impression was its way fun and I'll never go back to freewheel but I have one problem. It's harder to pedal and I can't even average the same speed as when I was on the freewheel even though the gearing stayed the same which is 42/16. I stopped by the lbs on the way home from work and picked up a 17t and had them installed it, rode home with it but didn't make much of a difference besides it's easier to get going from a stop. Also, it's cold here in MN so I'm sure that will affect it somewhat but is this normal for first time fixed rider?
