So I've decided on building a fixie...
This'll be to school and for a little thrashing around.
I'm wanting to build a really aggressive riding fixie around $500. Something that weighs less than my wallet and is terrifying.
I'm thinking of getting this frame: http://www.leaderbikestore.com/pd-721tr-track-frame.cfm
Which would leave me like $150-200 for a wheelset with a flip-flop hub. Possible?
After that, I'm just gonna harvest some bikes around my dad's house. He has a couple old steel Fujis lying around that I'm sure I could take a couple things from.
And what about painting the frame? I'm thinking a really strong but deep blue color with white bar tape, brake cable, chain, and sidewall tires. Or maybe a white frame with blue accent...
Head in the sky? I'll put together a build diary whenever I get the frame.
