I've been lurking around Bike Forums for a while, mostly doing research on building a bicycle.
After riding a friend's fixed gear bike, I am now in the process of building one.
I have found parts that I want online and was wondering if you guys could give me some guidance on how well this will work (eg. if the parts would be compatible or other recommendations).
Feel free to criticize my choices but my budget's about $600-$700 and I have certain color scheme in mind (chrome fork/stem/handlebar/seatpost, black frame/crank/hubs, white wheels, leather color saddle/straight bar).
its a pake frame w/o the labels, includes fork, and is a lot cheaper!
That looks like a steal! But it has a 1" headset instead of 1-1/8" which means it's a older standard right?
Another thing is that I would love to have a black frame and chrome fork, I wish there was a cheaper way to get the ones I found.
