    MTB frames for fixed road riding

    Anyone using MTB frames fixed for commuting, riding on the road? Hate that Q-factor, but maybe can get used to it?

    I have a monocog set up as a fixed gear. It's geared low with flat pedals and big fat SB8 tires. I use it to terrorize the neighborhood. I wouldn't want to commute on it, except maybe in extreme weather.

    I use a 29er with 2.10 knobby tires, the gearing is 36-15. I use it if I have to ride to the store or on a 10 mile or less round trip. It's actually a lot of fun, and we get snow here too so I always break it out for bad weather.

    Cool. Received a Jabberwocky for Christmas---will set up as commuter and runabout.

    Soon I can switch the El Mariachi SS back to off-road. These 38mm Vittoria Randonneer/Hyper are great tires.
