I searched and didn't find a topic that quite met what I was looking for so I figured I'd start this one.
(feel free to move/merge/delete etc if this is already done)
I have an old Schwinn World Sport road bike in my garage that's been collecting dust since the last time I rode it like 5 years ago. I've been trying to figure out what to do with it and after staring at it for a while today I though "hey why not go fixed?". I've always wanted to give fixed riding a try and I figure I should do it with this old POS.
Schwinn World Sport (yellow with rusted scratches!)
The wheels are bent and there are no tires/tubes .
The whole gear set up is pure rust.
Basicly I know I'm going to need to get new wheels or take the wheels off the road bike I don't use any more and put em on there. I've read Sheldon Browns guide and am still not sure what I should get for a hub, or where to get it.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to turn this in to a working fixie for the least amount of money I can. I saw some guys thing about taking off the derailers and just setting it to the gear you want but that seems pretty lame and I'd like to get this thing set up for real.
Any comments, suggestions, or even flames will be greatly appreciated.
