Hi, i'm such a noob here its unreal! But i've had this sudden urge to build my own custom fixed gear from scratch, but i have no experience with bikes! I'm willing to put a lot of time into it to building the perfect bike no matter how long it takes. But i need a starting point! I'm 5'10" and quite big built, so im thinking i need a 54 cm frame? i would prefer to restore an old frame and make it my own by cleaning it and spraying it but i'm struggling to recognize exactly what frame i need and where to look? If anyone could give me a list of components i need to get started that would be greatly appreciated!
Kind regards jay!

Well did you read the rest of that start here thread? Also here:http://sheldonbrown.com/fixed.html
Well, if you don't have much experience with bikes, let alone working on them, it will very difficult to built the "perfect bike" because you probably don't even have a starting point for your own preferences.

I am not Google.
Considering you posted the same thing word-for-word in the 'start here' thread, there really isn't any need for this.
