  • You would face so many different types of inclines. Long, slow climbs through Colorado, Missouri rollers every 5 minutes, Kentucky steep short climbs, pan flat Kansas. It's got a bit of everything so fixed you would either have to have iron legs or be changing sprockets every other state!

  • Yeah, which kind of defeats the purpose of fixed.

    I like it when people riding fixed/ss are competitive with the guys on gears (that bloke that nearly got the 12hr Comp Record on a singlespeed when I was racing in Newbury for one sticks in my mind and Boardman's Comp Record), not when they're basically doing the same thing people do entering Bromptons into races (oh look at me I'm so quirky).
