So I have been lurking on this section of the forums for a few days, doing searchs and basically learning. I fell in love with the single speed look after watching all the bike messengers ride by downtown all day. I figured it was time to start thinking of building one myself. So, I have the few basic's down such as get a frame. I have my sights set on a 70's or 80's model road frame but from there I'm kind of lost. Here are a few questions.
1. Will any BB and crankset work?
2. I know I can use a freewheel hub on the back wheel and just space it out, but what do I use as spacers?
3. Does the frame matter, or can I use any one that I fall in love with?
4. How does sizing work? I know that I ride a 58cm frame on my road bike, but on my mountain bike, because of my style of riding, it's a bit smaller than that I would normally ride. Should I shoot for road bike size dead on or in and around that size?
Alright, I'm really looking forward to start this build up. I'm finishing up summer school and am going to have a lot of free time until the fall semester starts. I'm hoping to finish this project before school starts so as I can take my bike with me. I look forward to everyones opinions and suggestions. THANKS!
