a step over to the dark side?
ordered a fixie from my LBS (Pearson Cycles, who I would highly recommended) yesterday to replace my mangled specialized sirrus (bent frame and rear derailleur after a few spills, one involving a car)... was supposed to be picking up a very sensible trek 7.3 (in fact they'd built it for me to collect but they didn't bat an eyelid when I decided last minute to put my fears aside and go down the fixed route)... I'm sure it's going to be hell for the first few commutes (18 miles both ways with hills, but only 2-3 times a week)... that said, hopefully it will improve bike fitness.. anyone else gone down this route? am I mad???!
