Anyone ride one? Im gonna be commuting on one for a few months so it gonna be a cheap 150 $ one with a flipflop hub since parts are cheaper than anything and then I wont have to worry so much about it getting stolen. I also dont know what chain length or gear ratios or anything like that.

I had a single speed because fixies are bad for your knees. (Braking more specifically).

It was a good time.

Chain legnth, who cares, as long as it is snug. Gear ratios, depends on what you want to do. Fixies typically are a harder ratio for more speed, but that means slower acceleartion.

I got a lime green and black Trayl Fixie. They are pretty good for commuting as long as the wind isn't directly in your face.

Rode a fixie. Hated it. Had the wind pushing me and had to bail to a ditch.

Some people like to have clip in shoes and hop stop the bike until they slow down. If you are a hardcore fixie rider they usually don't have brakes so they stop that way. I personally have a front brake on mine cuz I don't feel like eating someone's car if they pull out in front of me.
