Hi FG/SS. I'm a C&V reg who has finally turned to the dark side. I've been riding vintage steel road bikes for a couple years now, and just picked up my first fixed-gear two weeks ago. It's a brilliant frame, built up with a mish-mosh of nice parts and mediocre parts. the only thing i've changed so far is the pedals; it came with some crappy plastic pedals, which i've switched out in favour of some MKS GR-9s with Cristophe clips and straps.
To do list for right now is swapping the stock saddle out for a lighter/smaller/stiffer one, replace the el cheapo chain with something less stretchy, and perhaps getting some real bullhorns to replace the flop-n-chops. I also want to get a proper reverse/time-trial lever to mount on the end of the bullhorn, instead of the ghetto-rigged drop-bar lever I currently have.
If anyone has a nice white saddle, some nice bullhorns, or a spare reverse lever that they want to sell/trade/donate, let me know.
