    Before and after, my fixed gear build.

    Before

    Primered up

    Finished




    Thanks to all the guys that gave me advice and help I appreciate it a lot. I learned a lot through this build, and managed to keep it within my budget of $350.

    Cool. Only thing is, my Pake chainring was worse than Biopace. Might be worth planning on getting a better ring sometime in the near future. The cranks themselves seem fine.

    I'd get some foot retention, probably not a big deal since you have a brake, but trust me, it's a lot more fun with foot retention. It might be a pain in the ass at first, but after about a week it rules.

    You can get some plastic clips and nylon straps for probably $10, if you decide you like it, which you probably will, you can upgrade as you see fit, personally, I just bought these http://cgi.ebay.com/Comet-Synthetic-...item27aafb1787 and use the nylons plus those as doubles on plastic double gate clips.
