+10^10^10^...^10 on riding like your invisible. You are not mad. It's every one else (thats what I say anyway). I love riding in heavy traffic as well. Get your brakes diled and find a gear you like and go for it (unless I am on a very long straight strech I have not found a need to change gear in the city, wasted time and effort, plus riding in one gear gives you rippling legs that you wife will love !). Remember to try not to cut up other cyclists, they are just trying to get about like you. If you are really interested try and find some alley cats in you area even if it is just to watch at a check point get an idea of how it works. Some are listed in the single speed forum (alleycats are not single speed fixed gear exclusive so don't be put off, they are just listed in that forum).

Also check out http://www.digave.com/videos/ for some fun vids.
