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)

EDIT: FINISHED PICS BELOW


any suggestions?

those bars arent final, i am putting some SOMA track bars on there, but i sort of like how the stubbys look actually.

Yeah I'm about that far backwards with my Peugeot; my wheels and hardware are coming and I'll be replacing the crank when my pay comes in. What frame is that?

I wouldn't go for track drops, myself - especially with a relaxed frame like that, it'll defeat the whole purpose of 'em while also doing a number on your back... go for some nice comfortable road drops or three-speed bars or something.

Track drops on conversions are still ugly as ****,
but otherwise that's a good looking conversion.
