    Hey from RVA

    Hi all

    Just a VCU student who commutes via my bike, a mid to late 90's GT MTB. I recently received an older Trek MTB frame and am looking at building it up as a single speed/ fixed gear, with one of those flip flop hubs. I signed up mostly for the local advice on how to proceed with this project. Basically my questions are going to be along the lines of whats the best way to go about like this; why won't this thing work, why is this bleeding or why was that so easy? I've tapped into the BBS community in the past and am somewhat nervous about this, as it's a way to be hooked to the computer for hours on end. But here I am, and glad that this forum exists.

    LOL! Sounds like you've got the right approach to the learning curve/process of SS and fixed. Welcome!
