Hi, I'm new to the world of ss/fixed gear, although I only use about 3 speeds on my roadbike. I have a ugly, heavy (relatively) Ross frame that I'd like to turn into a fixie/ss witout much $$ into it. I'm a college student and this is meant to be a stopgap until I can get a real frameset. I've seen some interesting hubs on the fixies in town and the one that interested me the most was the one with the ss on one side and the fixed on the other (flipflop hub, maybe?)
Anyway, I was wondering about gearing and what kind of stuff I need to get. I was thinking 700c 35's for good pothole-durability... I've pinched the 23's on my roadbike a few too many times. I was wondering what wheelsets come reccomended that aren't hugely expensive, but that I could move up to a lighter frame without completely negating the purpose of the light frame. Anyway, I'll be interested to see what anyone has to say!
