    I find it really interesting that some find fixed natural and that some find it completely unnatural.

    I’ve only ever ridden fixed on the track, but it seems to me the most comfortable natural thing to keep my feet gliding round. A friend who rides plenty on the road says he just can’t get his head round it.

    I do keep meaning to get hold of a road fixed, but I’m already up to 5 bikes, and I’m not sure I need the domestic grief for another just yet….

    (Oh, and for those worried about pedal strikes, assuming you’re running a bike with a suitably high BB, just fit 165mm cranks.)

    “Pah! I’ll be impressed when I see fixie bunny hops”

    There is a fixed bunnyhop barspin on film out there somewhere, some guy in the US. step drops, wallrides and barspins seem to be getting common too..
    I won’t be trying to learn those )
