Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What do I need to make this wheel a SS wheel?

What parts will I need to turn this wheel into a SS wheel? And where can I get such parts?

some of those spokes look pretty rusted. Watch out for those, they could pop. Do those socks fit? I'm wondering if the heels are halfway up your calves? ;-)
