comment Why ride a fixed-gear bike?
I experienced this on my fixie just a few weeks ago: pedaling (on flat, level terrain thankfully) at a pretty high cadence, going quite fast, and thunk chain snapped completely off the bike. There was a curve coming up and if I'd not had a front brake to hit I'd have caromed right into a Dutch countryside canal (or "stopped" by falling off the bike). So yeah, if you ride fixed, have a front brake. Seriously.

comment What do you wish someone had told you before your first commute?
While I'm happy to take credit for a great quote, that was actually Dennis Wurster (bicycles.stackexchange.com/users/178/dennis-wurster) who said that below, not me.

comment Rear dropout adjustment screws on fixed-gear conversion
How often is that going to be an issue? Chains don't stretch out that quickly.

comment Rear dropout adjustment screws on fixed-gear conversion
Hm, I actually hadn't thought of using them as an alignment guide that way. Getting the wheel set properly and then adjusting the screws in place so that I can just fit the wheel in against them the next time is probably a better idea than removing them completely. Thanks!
