Brompton Spider Crankset indefinitely unavailable. Bah!

So, five months after my hit and run I have the bike shop the go ahead to start fixing my Brompton - the insurers haven't paid out yet, but I'm sick of waiting.

Turns out that the 44t spider crankset I need us indefinitely out of stock.

Options are to wait until it becomes available or install the old style fixed crankset.

Are there any advantages/disadvantages to a fixed crankset?

Feeling a bit grumpy about it at the moment.

You can fit other cranksets.
Yes. I like the idea of the spider crankset, as its what I bought the bike with.
Very happy to consider something different, the bike shop have suggested the fixed Brompton crankset, just wondered if there was any good reason not to go for this option.
