It's coming up to a month since I started riding 'fixed' I'm doing OK, enjoying it, and no disasters so far (touch wood etc etc). However much the most difficult manouvre I find is starting off, especially as I have stuck with toe-clips for the time being, getting my second foot in is often a bit awkward. My other bikes have clipless pedals, so I am sort of used to clipless riding, I was nervous about being attached to a bike that cannot freewheel. Now I just wonder if it's time to go 'fixed and clipless' and whether egg beaters are the answer as I think I am right in saying you can pretty much clip in whatever the pedal's orientation at the time is. Do any of you have 'egg-beater experience'? I am particularly keen to know how easy they are to get out of as I nderasatnd the clip's spring is not adjustable.
