Well decided today was as good as anyday to get the Langster out for the commute into work. My first ride on fixed and it was pretty uneventful apart from the wind in my face for most of the journey was knacked once I got to work. Think the 42x16 gearing will suffice for a while, hard enough on the hills, but got plenty speed up on downhills. My only issues are the clipless pedals ( Look Keo`s) had a few issues trying to get into them after stopping . As for leg breaking gonna need plenty strength for that. Didn`t feel the need to to try and coast either, came quite natural to just pedal Locked the back wheel up once doing an emergency stop. Bike seems very comfortable as well, not to stretched out.
