first non-fixie ride of the yeartemplecat

Was doing all my miles on my fixie in the cold & wet NE winter. Finally jumped on my geared bike last weekend.
It was like having to learn to ride a bike all over again
(I hear you never forget). I was slower on the usual route (compared to the fixie)& felt not as smooth out of the saddle, etc.

How long should I wait for geared form to return or should I just sell my geared bike?

Took my SS out for a loop saturday and the geared out today for a similar loop. I don't put alot of stock into mph averages, within 1.5 mph of each other. Whodathunkit?
