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)

If it fits, and if the condition is as good as it looks, then yes.

Yea, the bike is the same size/fit as my current fixie. Will be a fun project for maybe a grocery fixie.

Mind you, it probably has steel rims, which is fair, at that price.

Yea, certainly, but odds are I'll be replacing at least the back wheel anyway, and probable a few other parts in what will probably be a long term project simply because I am poor and won't be able to buy all the components at once.

Depending on how nice it is, I might retire my old fixie to be the new beater, and put my nicer wheels on this one.

There you go. Not a bad idea. This one looks to be in excellent condition. Good luck.
