My friend from school built a fixie and let me and a couple others try it and i fell in love. I was amped to build one (even though i lack any knowledge about building a fixie) and visited another one of my friends for an old frame. The frame I got from him had vertical dropouts which i now learned make it more difficult to put together. What are some easy ways to use this without getting a new frame or buying that special ENO eccentric hub?
you can run a fixed with vert dropouts with a little effort.
I have a 15 and a 17 rear cog, and a half link. I have never not been able to fit one of these with the vert drop outs. Right now I am running 42-17, and as the chain stretches, at some point I will need to drop the half link and swap to the 15.
