I only rode about 10 miles yesterday on the new bike, but my muscles feel as though I went on a ride twice that long. I wonder if braking by pressing the pedals backwards contributed to this. I do recall from studying weight training that most of muscle growth happens on the muscle extention phase, as opposed to the contraction phase. I wonder if this is what people are talking about when they say fixed gear riding is better exercise.
