I still manage to 'bomb down hills' on my fixie and it's still a lot of fun. But I admit there's no sense of achievement if you haven't climbed that fucker before hand.

Nice track bike tho :) Where are you? If you live by a velodrome you should take that thing out the the track. it's a lot of fun.
I'm in England living in Kent, but I'm moving to London in the next year or so, which is why I've decided to get used to riding a fixie. No velodrome nearby at the moment, but I'm definitely going to try it out next time I'm up in London with my bike.
