Really? I thought the whole point of the rear coaster hub was to ensure that the pedals stop turning, i.e. to stop them smacking into your shins. I ride flatland and wouldn't fancy trying it with a...

The balance is coming back, slowly but surely. Sadly I haven't got as much time as I'd like to practise. I also need to spruce my bike up a bit as the rust on certain parts is a bit depressing.

Oh dear, dear me. Try starting at the bottom of the bike and working your way up. However many times I do it, I still get the TT and think 'WTF were they thinking?'

Great post, thanks!

Indiglow - Yeah, my clients pay for travel, so I could probably save/make around 30,000 yen a month. The main reason I want to do it is that I'm pretty much sick of trains,...

I used the term 'round trip' because that's the distance I'd be covering in a day. Getting there is one thing, but after putting in a day's work, I might not feel much like cycling 30-35km back home,...

Question for FG commuters.

I love riding my bike and pretty much hate catching trains (especially in Tokyo). If possible I'd love to commute by bicyle, but it's a daily round trip of about 70km. Does anybody ride this kind of...

No photo's as yet, but I ride an old 21-speed Giant cross bike which is solid but unremarkable and a three-speed mama-chari with a seat on the front for my son.

Oops, too late, but I'm about the same size as you and got a 58 Fuji Classic. I rode both the Classic and the Feather and, for me, the Classic was a nicer ride, but that's all down to personal...

Well, first of all, get a brake - that would pretty much solve your problem. Also, as you get used to riding a fixed bike a little more, you'll be able to control your speed better. But definitely...

Thanks, I appreciate it! I don't particularly care what I look like, to be honest, I was just wondering what people's opinions were. Like you, I have fun doing it, which is good enough for me.

Certainly not dumb in my eyes - I was curious too. I ride with drop bars (on my fixed) and prefer them to the raised handlebars on my cross bike. I also ride in an urban area and don't have any...
