Fixed Gear Conversion
hey guys i'm new to the forum
i've been reading up on fixed gears and have been compelled to convert an old road frame into one
i've got some questions though
1. I currently have 27 inch wheels/tires, when i buy a new wheelset will 700c tires fit in?
2. To save money i'm thinking about keeping the same crankset which currently has one with 52 teeth and 39 teeth. I'll be getting an 18 tooth rear cog (it comes installed on a flipflop plus wheels.) Would it be better to go 52:18 or 39:18? Or just buy a completely new crankset? i live in a mostly flat, suburb area, however there are some decent sized hills around me.
This is all i can think of for now, i'm sure i'll have more questions later.
thanks for your help
