Hi. I'm new to the fixie/ single speed thing. Actually I'm new to road bikes all together. I know nothing. I've been into bmxing for 6 years and have a fit hawk frame with a bunch of random parts; fit, tree, profile, odyssey.
Basically i was wondering what good are good frames to convert into fixies?
From what I've already gathered a steel frame with horizontal dropouts? anything else?
I'm poor. and fat. and 5'10, whats a good height for me?
I got this today. A friend who works at a bike shop gave it to me. I don't know anything about it. It's a complete piece of ****. But i plan on throwing it together anyway so i have something to ride and if i'm really into it I'll buy nicer parts.
I don't even know if it uses 700c wheels. Is there a way i could figure it out without actually testing wheels on it. What should the chainstay length be?
