i'm planning to build up a fixed-gear bike. i sold my other one and have been riding a road bike for a while now. now, i have some stupid questions about my planned setup, and am wondering if anyone can give me any advice.
first, a list of components:
leader 725tr 2010 frame + aluminum steerer carbon fork + fsa zs headset
mavic open pro to formula from bicyclewheelwarehouse (or maybe the dt swiss)
sugino 75 bb + sugino rd messenger crankset
EAI cog + DA lockring or some other good lockring
thompson / other threadless stem + deda crono (bullhorns) or deda pista (drops)
leader 27.2 seat post + specialized toupe saddle
shimano SPD or speedplay time atac alium pedals.
a front brake....
so, my questions are:
will the formula rear hub be compatible with a 45mm chainline? i can't find any info about this anywhere.
is there a way to use 25.4 bars (nitto b019s look very awesome) with a 1 1/8" threadless stem?
is there anything else anyone would recommend on this build besides the obvious "don't get a leader"?
i am fine with aluminium. my two fixed-riding friends both have aluminium frames (a GTB and a giant bowery) and we've gone on long rides with no comfort problems. i ride an aluminum road bike with a carbon fork / alum steerer and have no comfort problems. on this build, my bars will be taped obviously. i dont foresee any comfort problems.
i could care less about doing barspinzzzzzzz. i live on the top of a very big hill and want to go fast coming down and up and around the city. so because of this, i am not going to tarck out the bike with an expensive, heavy aero front wheel, because even if the aero advantage outweighs the weight, and even if it would look really cool, i have to climb 600 feet to get home every day and i usually end up doing that climb 2 or 3 times.
i plan on running around 75 or 80 GI.
if this doesnt warrant a thread i can definitely understand. lol. so sorry in advance if thats the case
