Gunna do my first FG conversion.
Well little background I used to have a pretty nice road bike, well decent at least.
Well I had to sell it before I moved a few months ago.
I wanted to get a fixed gear while I had that bike so now not having a bike and being super broke I decided I'm gunna try to build my own fixed gear. I got this bike for $20 and am probably just gunna try to do everything as cheap as possible to get it up and going. Then when I can save some money up I'll buy a nicer bike. I really like the Fuji Track but that will be down the road.
Right now it's a single cog but 3 speed coaster but back pedal for brake.
I just gotta find somewhere to buy cheap new, well...everything really. I got handlebars coming from friend already but it needs new wheels and tires badly. Plus I want a new bottom bracket and crankset but I don't even know where to start with all that right now.
I really want to get it stripped down and just painted black or dark gray.
