Cost effective way to build up a fixie
Right now I have a single speed bike, it used to be a 18 speed but two of the three crank rings were removed and 5 of the six cassette rings were removed and replaced by spacers
I know I could just replace the rear hub with an appropriate fixed hub, rebuild the tire, and be done with it. But eventually I'd like the whole bike to be replaced piece for piece as I see fit to build a much nicer bike than the cheap Craigslist bike I have now (which don't get me wrong, gets me where I want to go). So if I bought the wide hub for this bike, eventually when I replace the frame I'd have to buy a new hub. Yes, I know I'm cheap, but I have two kids, which are not...
So I suppose maybe I should just go ahead and track down a track frame? My frame is aluminum so unfortunately bending it to accommodate a narrower hub is not an option. I could move over all the other parts from my SS to the new frame.
Or is there a third option out there I'm not seeing?
Just looking for some thoughts. Thanks,
