    Parts for a single speed coaster brake bike

    I'm planning on turning my current project bike into a single speed with a coaster brake, been looking at these parts:

    Wheelset:

    Tires:

    Chain:

    And tubes/rimstrips/etc.

    Anyone have any experience with Junky Rusty Bikes/care to look over my choices? The bike right now is in dire need of new wheels and I'd like to go with a coaster break and not have to worry about adjusting the rim brakes. And I like the aesthetics better, hah.

    Should also mention that I'm planning on running a front rim brake too, just in case!

    I've never done a build, and I'm not familiar with the parts on the links you've sent, but I just posted in another thread about just this kind of bike. What frame are you using? Is it one of the lightweight Mercier or Windsor frames so popular with fixed gear riders?
