    re: new kid converting to a fixie (help! again!)

    Hi again, I posted a month or so ago about getting started on a fixed gear bike. i finally got a nice frame now and I am planning on converting it to a fixie this winter, but I need some help just getting the thing back together from how it was shipped! i was hoping you all could help me out.

    I am not sure if I need a chainbreaker or not for the chain. Is it necessary to put the back wheel on?

    as for the headset and fork, the headset doesnt have a clamp and doesnt screw into the frame and fork, so it's kind of loose, does anyone know what i'm doing wrong with this?

    here are some pictures of my bike and the areas i'm having trouble with. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you need to break the chain to put the wheel back on no. Just put the chain around the cogs and slight the wheel on..

    Check out partools and sheldown brown's web site they have great how to's on repairing bikes.. would be first thing I would suggest. THe headset just check under threadless headset. THe stem screws into the fork that is what that top bolt is for. There is a large nut that you can screw down to tighten the headset.
