    My Genesis Flyer now has a fixed sprocket. I've just ridden home from the bike shop in the middle of town. I didn't die, I remembered to relax, I remembered to keep pedalling, and I enjoyed myself! RESULT!

    Keep at it!

    We all come off once, it's a question of when, but make sure you get back on and it'll probably never happen again!

    Without exception everyone who rides a fixie enjoys and learns. I built up my first one from scratch and now building two more, one for the track and a fun one - can't think of an eye-catching paint job for it yet.

    I always wanted the silver sparkle that Bob Jackson does as a refin option. Imagine it catching the sunlight and blinding people as you stealth your way past. People will think that you are some kind of cycling deity. :biggrin:

    I'll keep my eye out in Brum for the Genesis, shouldn't be hard as there aren't many around and it's a very nice bike!

    Hey, BentMikey, are you yet another recumbent rider who also rides fixed? xx(

    I suppose it's down to our inbuilt coolness and sense of adventure :sad:

    Hey Mikey, does anybody ride a fixed bent?

    Also, I used to commute to college on my roller skates, found it rather fun actually, certainly gets you a lot fitter than cycling

    This is the first one I've seen in a video. Not usually done because of the large speed range of bents:

    Yeah, skating is pretty good exercise, it improves your cycling hill climbing no end, especially once you get into the savage intervals.
