Just ordered one of these for *hopefully* a final commuter build (single speed). Not too keen about having to deal with canti brake set up again, but oh well. Got a pair of 38mm Vittoria Randonneur Hyper tires.
I recently read a small interview with a bike shop mechanic who rides the same bike as me, a Lemond fixed gear. He puts in an insane 35 miles to and 35 miles from everyday. At 70 miles a day, what was interesting is he did say having a single speed made adjustments and maintenance easy. He said he did enjoy how simple everything in the drive train was.
He did replace his front chain ring for a steel one instead of the common aluminum one. He also found a special hardend steel rear cog which also added rear wear resistance.
