okay, so i've looked into this whole fixie thing and decided i would love to convert a bike. so while i was at the bike shop getting a commuter on emergency i asked "what do you know about converting to fixies" and was told "you need horizontal drop outs but don't bother, they never work right". what does that mean? i've got a frame, all i need are a couple parts and i'm there, but i'm obviously not going to be able to get them from my lbs.
i still wanna know what he meant by that, though. any ideas?
