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)

It makes me sad when British people can't use the language they originated.

Im looking to strip the paint from the frame and paint it pearl white, then start buying everything else and fixing it together with help from some friends.

I bought a complete SS/FG bike and rode it as both. I prefer the freewheel and no longer feel the need to "want to build one". If I were you, I would buy a cheap one, then decide if you really want to build one on your own. You never know, you might not like them....
