Hello guys. ive just recently found myself obsessing over fixed gear bicycles. i want to get one but dont know much about them. so please help me out by answering these few, simple questions: which type of frames are better, track or converted road bike? i have a feeling it really doesnt matter but would like to know your opinions. I would like to get a bike soon, within the next couple of weeks and have about 500 dollars to spend. would it be in my best interest to just buy a brand new fixed gear bike, or convert an old 80s road bike? i was thinking of getting an IRO Mark V, these seem popular but i dont know...would a pista be better? anyway thanks for reading and thanks for your replies.
