last semester some guy crashed my bike into a wall and bent the frame. all the components are ok but the frame is bent. I am looking to build a fixed on a new frame with the old components. I understand that I will need a new rear hub and probably a new cog.
How important is a track frame instead of horizontal dropouts?
Is it possible to ride with control without brakes on a horizontal dropout frame? (I am very partial to peugeot frames from the late 80's and I havent found one with track ends yet.)
Also, anyone have any tips for a first time fixed build? (websites for parts (other than sheldon brown) or must haves?
whats the best way to chop handlebars??
