Maynard, I know you are down on the current lot of "fixie" riders, but you ARE old enough to remember a time when fixed gear training was de rigeur in the early season. I like to joke with the youngsters that among the people who taught me about fixed gear training, I'm a newbie. I didn't ride a fixed gear for training and commuting until 1977!
Who knows? Maybe some youngster with a Chrome bag and no brakes will turn out to be the next Lance.
