    Jamis Satellite, fixed gear?

    I have a Jamis Satellite and would like to convert it to fixed gear. I know the part to which the rear wheel attaches is the incorrect type for this kind of conversion, but is it still possible? Thank you for any help.

    Might as well sell and get an actual fixed frame. Who wants those narsty cable guides on a fixed frame, anyway?
