Fixed Gear finish...denied (old chain is too NARROW...argh)
I had the rig together... Moustachio handlebars, old-skool fenders, '71 Brooks saddle...
I break the chain, flip the hub to the FIxed side, move it back in the dropout, drape the chain over and clip it with a wire... as I move it over the cog, I notice the links don't jive with the teeth... arrrgh...
