Aiight, so Im in the PNW, it rains, and I'm sick of driving my car everywhere so I've decided to build up a beefy fixed winter commuter that can handle fatty tires. I may even do some loaded touring on it once the sun starts showing itself, but thats a long time from now. I've more or less got the parts list down but I want your guy's input on some stuff. I just want everything to be "bombproof" or as close as I can get within my budget, which is roughly $800-$1000. Here's what I've got so far:
Frame/Fork: BikeIsland Motobecane Jury
Stem: Thomson Elite
Bars: Nitto Noodle
Crank: Silver Omniums? IRD Defiants? 170mm(I'm a gangly mofugga)
Chainring: Whatever comes with the omniomnoms, I think 47t 1/8"?
Wheels: Velocity Synergy's? Mavic Open Pro's? to Phil Track Hubs (Tied and soldered???) (From velomine?)
Cog: Surly 17t 1/8"
Seatpost: Thomson Elite? Miche Supertype? (I think they look cool :/)
Saddle: Selle Anatomica Titanico X? Brooks Team Pro?
Fenders: Velo Orange 50mm Smooth
Tell me what you guys think, and I'm not trying to build a "tracklocross" bike here, just a fun, reliable fixed commuter/tourer. (That I may or may not take on some gravel roads and trails now and again...)
