This new found feeling of fluidity really isn't too big of a surprise; almost anything will feel smoother than an old-school drivetrain. (laughs) But you are right about the maintenance, or lack there of; less parts less problems! Fixies are cool and trendy, perhaps too much for their own good. And as with any trend, I imagine they wont be around, or at least so mainstream, forever. Maybe I'm just not cool enough, but a single speed just makes more sense.
