I would like to get another fixie albeit the idea of desending Washington Rock Road onto Rt22 scares me a lot more than the thought of climbing that same hill:hmmm:
i'm still toying with how the hell to get down vossler lane with out flying into rt 22... probably gonna end up jamming the foot into the back wheel to save myself... bye bye shoe soles!
This portion of the article is what I remember most about riding "Fixed"article said:Within the danger, though, lies the beauty of fixed-gear riding. On the thin edge of control there comes a calmness. The pedals whisper what you never realized was there: The tiny rocks and cracks, the slightest hills and sandy patches. A whole new road stretches out begging to tell you its secrets.
...there's absolutely no difference between it and a ss once ur moving.
Having a brake doesn't kill the experience. It just provides some insurance so you don't kill yourself. :hmmm:
