How much new equipment?
I'm planning on building a fixie off an old frame and parts. I have 3 old frames sitting around, and I figure I can put together a nice fixed gear from the combined parts.
So I figure, all I need is a hub. I can reuse a chainwheel, chain, sprocket, rims, spokes, brake, frame, bars, and build a back wheel on the new fixed gear hub. After that it should all be a matter of adjustments.
Am I right? Or do I have to purchase more than the hub? Do I need a new sprocket/chain/rim/chainwheel/crankset/etc? The local fixie LBS has only 36 hole hubs, but I figure I can find a 32 one somewhere, since all my rims are 32-spoke.
This will be a sweet project!
