    Good candidate for a fixie conversion??

    im looking for a new frame to fix... do you think this would be a good candidate for a fixie commuter/beater? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...geName=MERC_VI those are track dropouts, right? dunno about the chainguard though... too much extra weight.

    Wow, awesome bike. How fast do you think you can climb a hill on that? I'd lose the chain guard and throw on 20c tires just to lose a few grams too, and get a carbon fork, it'll be worth the extra investment.
