My friend Mike helped me build up a fixed-gear rear-wheel last night. My ride in to work is brief (less than 2 miles), so I thought this would be a good way to get more exercise out of such a short distance – only one speed and no way to coast means plenty of pedaling. It worked really well, and the bike looks pretty sweet without all that extra hardware (which I saved in case I want to switch back). Check it out here (always wear your helmet, especially if it’s orange and stylish).
