    I like fixed for commuting, I commuted fixed in the late 1980's, early 1990's, came back to commuting fixed almost 5 years ago and wondered why I had stopped doing it all those years ago, my commute isn't flat.

    Having reached the conclusion that summer was never coming, I got off my single speed and onto my summer bike a couple of week ago. That transition's pretty good too. I'm riding the hills on my commute 2 gears higher than when I last tried.
