I mostly ride the fixed-gear to work these days and it has extremely reliable. Not much to wrench on. Haven't replaced anything on it in the last two years except the tires - not really necessary but I wanted to try some new ones out - and bar tape. My commute is 12 miles round trip on mostly flat bike path in a nice dry climate so not much wear and tear. Any mechanical issues usually surface in the first week of riding for me and then then once fixed usually stay fixed until something wears out.

I stripped my crank arm once when I didn't tighten the pedal enough so it wore the threads out until the pedal just fell out.
