Ive been riding for quite a bit of time on both singlespeed/fixed and a standard road bike. I use a Trek T1 track bike and have a flip-flop hub, 1 side is a 16T and the other a 17T freewheel. The best of both worlds baby!
Hills aren't a problem as long as you have an appropriate gear setup. A fixed gear will train you how to become more efficient and will make you a more efficient rider.
So you plan to upgrade the existing singlespeed you got from Wal-Mart?
