Put some money down on the 9.2.5 Redline frame last night and the good folks at Cars Bike Shop in Mounds View are going to assist me. Hope fully I can get his done by months end.
back pedal and front brake
Most fixed gears have a front brake and being that the hub only goes in one direction you can ease down to a low speed by locking your legs up. There is also a methosd called skid stopping but I have not tried that. I am getting my hub shortly and I think I am going to get a flip flop which is fixed on one side and I can flip the wheel around and make it single speed which I can coast with. I too like brakes so I wil be putting a back brake on for added safety until I get used to riding this way.
