Riding fixed gear bikes looks like a lot of fun, and I've been interested in trying it. I currently have two single-speed bikes and I was thinking of turning one into a fixed gear.
I plan on practicing in a place with not much traffic, at first, but I do have a rather puzzling question (at least for me). I live in San Francisco, which is known for its rather hilly topography, so does anyone have any pointers for slowing down and stopping on really, really big hills?
Thanks in advance!
