    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.

    what kind of frame is it? you need to know that before determining what bottom bracket type you need.

    I really don't know. I haven't been able to give it much of a look over. Been very busy today with the kids.

    How would I go about figuring that out if there's no markings on the bike?
