well here you have it. I'm brand spankin new to biking as well as the FG world. I've been road biking for a while now and work in a shop. However, what I really want to do right now is build up a fixie.
This being said I went out to a used bike store and picked up a Schwinn Le Tour Luxe for about 40 bucks. It's got the fork. But now I'm trying to figure out what else it is I'm going to need.
I know I will need a crank, bottom bracket since it's rusted out. a new head set. stem, handle bars, wheels, and seat post along with pedals with toe clips and straps.
I got the hang of riding it today in the store I work in. But I can get better obviously. I had hopes of building this up as a beater bike but also something that I can 1. custom paint myself, 2. learn all about the mechanics of a bike 3. say that I built it and know all about it.
Where should I begin?
I'm familiar with Sheldon Brown's site. But know I'm trying to figure out how to go about the next steps.
