I have been commuting for about 1 week on my new fixie, and almost everything about it is great. My only problem is that I have a lot of trouble getting my feet into the toe clips in traffic. The first foot is easy, but then once I start moving I have to go very slowly and watch my other foot as I fumble around and try to get it in the clip. Of course if it takes any time at all the cars behind start honking!! This was always very easy for me on my geared bike.
Anybody have a tip for me? Yes I know I should just be doing trackstands at stoplights, but I'm not good enough at them yet
