This will be my first fixie conversion, but not my first fixed gear. I also have a Specialized Langster(which my girlfriend now rides). I love the look of a clean conversion, and I have wanted a Fuji for some time. After looking at classifieds for too long I finally found this fine Fuji Berkeley.
I paid $90 cash for it. Honestly I feel bad stripping it down because all the shifters work so well and it is in very good condition.
22.5" from center of BB to top of Top Tube
33" standover height
Currently has nice alloy 27" wheels
Diacompe 500 brakes
Suntour friction shifters and derailleurs
Alloy Nitto stem
Nitto drop bars(look to be steel of some kind)
Weight is 31.5lbs (using the no-so-accurate [bike+me - me] bathroom scale trick)
Find a good fixie wheelset
Figure out the crank situation (Bulletproof or something else? Recommendations?)
Hope the Bottom bracket gives a nice chainline
Repack bearings in headset and bottom bracket
Decide on front brake (Will my extra shimano 105 reach? How do you guys like the Diacompe 500?
Decide on front brake lever (BMX-ish lever or cool TT aero one)
Decide on handlebars(bullhorns for sure, but not sure if I want fancy alloy ones, or chop shop)
The "thinking about buying bike" thread, thank you for your thoughts.
The following pictures are just the seller's shots. I'll add my own as the bike changes.
