I've just moved to Hobart and am living on campus at Utas. For those that don't know the city, basically I'm on the side of an enormous hill.
Coincidentally, Surly Steamrollers are selling out at $599, less than half price. Very tempting. Am I insane for considering it given my location and the hilliness of the city in general? I've never ridden fixed before. I'm assuming it's relatively simple to change the ratio, but I don't want it to feel like granny gear on the flat.
