First and foremost, hello. I just recently signed up to the forum and finding it an excellent resource. This will be my official build thread for my first fixed gear bicycle. I am still learning about bikes, so bear with me. If you have advice or anything that can help me with this build, by all means, post in here. I'm not an expert and I will probably do things wrong, after all, this is the first time I took up a project like this.
Got this 49mm Bianchi frame for 40 bucks (not the best deal). I later realized that it might be a little too small for me. It's a heavy frame for it's size (7.7lbs with fork and headset). I tried finding more information about the frame, however came up with very little with the help of the guys in C&V forum:
Id this Bianchi
Began stripping the frame of all the unnecessary components and of it's paint. No bead blasting or acid dip.
The end result:
Should be painted shortly. Stay tuned.
