2 years. Reading some of Sheldon Browns writings made me want to try it. I feel I've really improved as a rider on all my bikes by riding fixed.

I made my first fixed-gear in 1977. Have had at least one such bike since then. Currently have 2 geared for windy and non-windy days. As you might guess; I ride the smaller geared bike on the windy days so I don't have to suffer so much going upstream.

How do you feel you have improved fixing a fixed Ryan?
You never notice how much you coast until you can't. Pedaling all the time up hills and down made shorter rides into better workouts too.

I'm a little out of shape now but for a while I had legs like tree trunks from riding my FG.

I've been riding since around May. I'd say I have around 500 miles on these legs.

I plan on farting around the local velodrome once I take an intro class.
