I have been riding a road bike for about 6 months and have been really interested in building a fixie. Not only will it help my cadence and power, it looks like a lot of fun. (And it will help my wrenching skills.)
I have been reading sheldon browns website and I am almost ready to begin. One question though. I am planning on looking around for an old road bike to convert. What things should I look for?
Obviously a horizontal drop out, but other than that?
And are there any brands to either stay away from or look for?
