Hi from Atlanta

Just saying hey. I'm a first timer for fixed gear riding and I just purchased a Windsor "The Hour" 58cm. I've read some of the parts on it could use some upgrading so I was wondering which parts I should upgrade first and some good suggestions on what companies make good products. Thanks in advance.

Hi SB, usually wheels are the easiest way to upgrade....best place to ask is in the SS/FG forum, but be warned! Do your homework first, then ask questions .

Haha, thanks. I've seen some of the sarcasm that floats around in the SS/FG threads.

There's some nice people in there, but definitely do the search thing first !

Actually, one of the moderators lives in Atlanta and works at a bike shop. He'll be along later in the morning, and will probably be able to answer your questions, without sarcasm .
