At least the sidi's were't clipped to the pedals in transition. Can
you imagine trying to slip in and do your straps up when the shoes are
attached to a fixie?

At a sprint tri at Raby Bay last year there was a chopper racked in the
clydesdale's rack. Pretty sure it had a freehub though. I heard that
the guy that rode it only had one hand on the bars for the whole 15km
ride. The other hand was busy waving and giving the "peace" sign to
the cheering crowd.

It'd be ok if the course was pretty flat. Didn't a professional rider use a
fixie on one stage of a road race a couple of months ago?

If you are going to ride a fixie amongst geared coasters, a tri bike
leg is actually a good place to do it. No bunching or tactics.
Anyone now inspired to ride fixed in a tri relay?

yeah I agree. Those bulletproof cranks don't go with that frame at all.

The guy (Paul Vincent?) on the C+ Mag staff uses a fixie for his club
10+25TTs all the time as do many apparently. And if you watch
tr-hard-letes you notice they certainly like to mash a big gear

Oh, and Yes. It was Stuey Ogrady used a fixie for the prologue in a big
race earlier this year(?) which was only about 1.1km long

It was Stuey O'Grady - Prologue of the Giro was only just over a kay so
he figured, with his track experience...
