I just did my biggest fixed ride last wknd (36m) and I feel pretty good. It's amazing, my avg speed really hasn't suffered from when I rode gears.
Still haven't mastered trackstands, or skidstops (tires are expensive anyway). I'm doing the 5boro bike ride in May (I think it's the largest bike ride in the world) where they shut down half of NYC and the outer boro's to bicycles. Gonna take the Fixed this time (45mile course, approx.).
Fixed is fun.
