Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

an s2 will do everything just as well, but a chris king looks pretty neat. the worst thing about them is the price, and you nixed that.

google.

but for realz, it's not rocket science. stick a stem on there and don't tighten it, and add/remove spacers as necessary so theres a few mm of spacer (or stem) above the steer tube. tighten the topcap to make adjustments to the headset, and once you have it dialed in, tighten the stem to the steer tube. easy as pie.

It will work like a charm but you might have chain stay clearance problem? The Omnium's spiders are really thick and so are their chainrings.
