hey d,
I think you may be right, but I'll give it a week and see if I really need to do that. it would be a shame to gear down since I can reach 90-100 rpm on some parts of my route (on level ground - illinois is flat). and my bike is actually more of a fixed road bike than a street-savvy fixie (carbon this and that, ergo bars, tight clearance with skinny tires, light) so, you know, I'd like it to have a decent gearing. thanks though, I guess I can't have both that and responsive braking (without front brake).
