They're dangerous if the biker dosen't ride it well, I keep the front brakes, and use my legs to reduce de velocity.

Yes, some use lightweight frames and parts. (crankset, wheels, etc)

I changed my road bike into a fixie, its very easy and fun to do! I saw a fixie with a front wheel disk too...

Haha, sorry dude, I don't care who you are, you ain't stoppin' that bike "with your legs" if a car cuts you off

They're fun, but I would not commute on one.

When I was a bike messenger back almost twenty years ago I rode an Orbit Pista like this one.

Really surprised someone else will admit to owning that color combo and actually had a picture

They spent most of the day blaring music by bands that are so underground you've never heard of them, and then busted out the unicycle at about ten that night...
