    BMX fixie conversion

    Do you have one of these 20" wheelers?
    If so, post your ride.

    What components did you use?
    How much did you spend?

    Thanks

    haha, sweet. I have an old BMX frame lying around, maybe I'll look into converting it. Cant you buy a thing to convert a shimano freewheel to a fixed gear so you wouldnt need to buy a new hub and build a wheel around it?

    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    Just rotafix on a track cog, put a BB lockring over that, and try not to skid. It shouldn't come loose if you're not putting a lot of backpedal force on it.

    I made a fixed wheel (just used a wire-feed and welded up the freewheel) for a junky old bmx that was left at my place of work in Alaska, just used it to putz around and play on when there were no customers.

    It was a fun little toy.

    I believe freestyle BMXers use fixed gear so they can unicycle style trick everything.

    Haha, scratch the conversion, it looks far too silly for my taste. I'll stick to old road frames.

    Brothers, do we not all see those horizontal rear drops begging to have a fixed hub?
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    They are usually begging me to have a singlespeed conversion. In case of BMX, that conversion is already done, huh...

    What do you think look best on these bikes?
    Drops?
    Risers?
    or Bullhorns?
