I am currently involved in rejuvinating an older Fuji back to it's once proud condition. Once that is finished, I am going to start dismantling my current roadie with the intent of converting it to a fixed gear.
The way that I'm thinking it will go is that I will remove the casette from the rear wheel and attempt to disable the freewheel quality using some method as yet not discovered by me. Then I'll attempt to attach the only rear sprocket that the bike will know for the rest of it's life. I have seen some stuff about lockrings but don't think I fully understand the importance or the complications that almost certainly are before me.
What implications does this method have? Should I just shell out the 25bucks for a flip-flop hub or fixed hub and build a wheel around that? I'm pretty well-versed with tooling and mechanical methods so I was going to just jump into it and figure out the problems as they are presented to me. Thought I'd get some experienced feedback though. Thanks alot in advance and any advice is much appreciated.
