I decided to go for the simple bike concept, I've been on a fixed gear for six years and twelve thousand kilometers, and as long as I can physically do it, I will continue.
Believe me I have given this discussion a lot of thought and have left out ideas in order to simplify the decision.

Since a couple of years ago fixed gear bikes are fashionable, from my point of view to carry a fixed gear bike already increases its danger, if we also put a nervous geometry of track type - my case - we increase it more, if we remove the brakes we still make it more dangerous but if we put a very thin wheel and a very narrow handlebar, one of two, or we go very slowly on it or we risk the type every time we take it out.
