Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Should i convert this?

i had to sell my track frame and fork in order to pay rent. So while i wait until i can afford a new frame, i was thinking of converting this to a fix. or should i make it a single speed so when i do get a track frame i won't have to change it again?


the pinarello i want to convert

the frame i had to sell. i still have all the parts so....

If you'd made the switch from PBR to Blatz, perhaps you'd still have your frame...

Get a wheel with a flip/flop hub and have both.

A single-speed on the road likely needs both front and rear brakes to be legal.
Leave them on.
