You think a fixie is fast? Try a proper road bike with actual gearing. There isn't too much of a top speed difference depending on how the fixie is geared, but it also doesn't take 15 minutes to get out of a light. Now that's fast.
Also, any sort of climbing on a fixie/SS seems like hell. The only fixie I'd ride would have at least a single break in case things get crazy.
