    I first rode a fixed gear bike about 2 *weeks* ago... I hadn't yet installed a brake, tightened down the cog, or put on a lockring. I took it out on my snowy street and managed to halfway unscrew the cog the first time I resisted the pedals. And yet I survived But I wouldn't try it again like that, no way.
