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.
Considering I fear hitting something and eating **** at the speed i'm going at, yes I do think it's fast enough for me Aren't proper road bikes a few thousand dollars? Screw hill climbing in fixie's lol, great leg workout though.
