These bikes are kind of a ***** descending hills when rigged fixed gear. I did two fixed gear experiments this summer. The first was on my 80's Hardrock. I call that one a failure mostly due to the head of steam I picked up going down hill. The second experiment was with my SS road bike conversion. That was much more enjoyable. I didn't feel out of control on the descents. That one is a much lighter bike.
