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)

fixed/ SS conversion help

hey all i just bought my friends old olmo road bike that hasn't seen pavement in 10 years it's a 85-86 columbus steel frame lugged, all original and in very good shape. it has a campy style rear drop outs and it's complete. i'm gonna set her up as a fixed/ss with a flip flop hub rear. my question is where can i purchase a good/inexpensive rear wheel with a flip/flop hub, i'd like to keep it under 150 including the cog and freewheel if possible. also i'd like to put a set of bull bars on, where can i get a cheap pair of those.. this is a low budget project bike i'd like to keep the entire build less then 300 dollars i already put in 125 for the bike. thanks
