He can't be talking to me! I've DONE the fit thing. The person doing the fitting looked at me and said 'don't change anything.' That'll be $100 please.



At least I knew I had it right. Never did explain why I was so slow.

don't forget, 80% of your brake force is the front wheel, and you ain't got no front brakes now. Allow -lots- of stopping distance.


I think if I was riding a fixie on the street, with traffic and pedestrians and everything, I'd want a front brake. screw being pure, I don't wanna end up with my face stuffed into someones door because I couldn't stop.

We used to call those 'track bikes' as they were only for riding in velodromes.

If you flip that wheel you'll have NO brakes, not 20% or whatever. No coaster brake on there, no rim brakes.....no brakes at all.

At least put a front brake on if you havent ridden a fixie before. (and for when you flip the wheel)

The green one's mine. Been riding it for a quite a while, and am happy with my choice. OMI1150GS's fixie has brakes, it's on the page before this one. Also, no flip-flop hub on mine, so don't worry yourself too much.
