Interesting post in an old thread about single speeds.
But yes pedal clip is the devil of fixed gear. I've come close to a few bingles on mine going around corners too sharp, especially on uneven surfaces or roundabouts.
You just have to learn how to go wide and avoid the pedal clipping. It's better to cruise on a fixed gear than race.
Narrow pedals and shorter crank arms also makes a big difference.
Why is pedal clip the devil of fixed gear?
