Building my first single speed

Just came across a frame at a friends house and plan to build it as a single speed/fixie (flip-flop rear hub). I'm new to all things road, I have ridden BMX for years but have to give it up due to a shoulder injury.

Anyways, I came across this Dean Bikes frame with Slice fork (?). According to www.deanbikes.com, most of their frames are 68 x English bottom bracket. Will a Sugino 75 NJS Superlap Bottom Bracket work? I was thinking I will use the Sugino 75 track crank set as well.

Thanks for the help.

The bottom bracket will fit the frame and the crankset will fit the bottom bracket but I'm not sure if the chainline will work. Track bikes have narrow chainlines and this setup might not allow the chainrings to clear the chain stays. On the other hand, it might work but those are some expensive parts to experiment with.

Iowegian, does this problem happen due to the lack of the derailer setup which causes the lower section of chain to be closer to the chainstay?

Thanks for the replies so far.
