    Freestyle Fixie Build

    I'm new to the forum, but I'm an experienced cyclist. Im only 15, but I've been on wheels since I could walk. I actively ride BMX and I enjoy an ocassional distance ride on my road bike.

    I really want a bike that has the following specifications, if possible:

    - Speed of a road bike or close to it

    - Durability to the extent that I can confidently jump up and down curbs and ride on relatively rough terrain

    - Under 30 lbs.

    - Good looking: shouldnt be too hard. I can powdercoat the parts.

    - tires that can handle dirt

    My main use will be simply to get around town(Dallas) and ocassionally ride for pleasure

    I have access to basically every tool imaginable and heck, if theres a tool that i dont have, im a tool myself, thas what all my friends say

    So i want a really cool custom build, but because of lack of experience, i dont know where to start (components, measurements, etc).

    Dont assume that i have a lack of mechanical knowledge because of my age, i build stuff a lot and my dad is extremely handy and ive learned from him. (Just addressing this

    Thank you guys for your help in advance

    You're posting in the fgfs section so do you want a fixed gear freestyle bike that's real sturdy that can take bigger tires like a 2012 charge scissor? Or something more roadish like a surly steamroller? Look them both up and let me know what's more appealing.
