The current wheels on it are perfectly fine old rusty 27x1.25" wheels, but I understand I cannot get it to be a fixed gear without buying a new rear hub or wheel.
The bike itself was only $35. I have it stripped down to a single speed right now. My question is, would it be worth it to buy for example that Nashbar CPX22 wheelset for $130 on this old bike so I can ride it fixed? Or would it not be worth buying the new wheels on this cheap old frame?
At the moment I don't think I can afford new wheels AND a frame, unless there are some nice frames that aren't too expensive you think I should look into. I'm just getting into this stuff so be easy on me.
