Fixed Gear newbie on a budget
I am aware of what a basic fixed gear is and understand there is a subculture that goes along w/ it.
I am intersted in one for several reasons, as a ride around town/commute bike, and to help my cadence and form for racing.
and it seems like a purist type style
I am on a tight budget, but do have some spare parts lying around.
I have a complete Douglas fusion w/ Ultegra groupe not in use.
also have some old Dura Ace rims I could use.
is it worth converting this bike?
should I get a true fixed gear frame?
any help on how to get started on this project and the parts I woul need/want
please inform me!!!
