    yeah they are a touch too wide for me but otherwise not too bad. I prefer the Origin8 Gary II dirt drop bar which has a deeper drop and not quite as much flare out (so not as wide) Flared drop bars feels more natural as far as wrist position for me. I'm expecting the gary bar in the mail tomorrow

    First Fixed Gear, First Build.

    Picked up this 1982 Schwinn World from my local community bike center for $20 with the intention of doing a super-cheap fixed-gear conversion.



    Bought some cheap new parts online, found the other parts at the bike center. I walked into the bike center this morning with the frame, wheelset and backpack full of parts, then put the entire bike together in 2 hours exactly. Never worked on a bike before in my life besides learning how to true a wheel a month ago and taking the parts off the frame that came with it.

    As of now she sits at 24 pounds of almost finished fixed-gear goodness. It came out much better than I expected.




    Soon to come are a front brake, bar tape, 18T freewheel, clips, and lots of enjoyment. Suggestions, trolling and comments are welcome.

    Cheers

    Lower the stem, that is dangerously high.

    Cool, doing your own conversions is rewarding. Some unsolicited advice: if you're going to run brakeless, you should have some kind of foot-retention on the pedals, and some bar tape or grips wouldn't be a bad idea.

    After you've done your first downhill emergency stop without brakes, will you be able to get the brown stain off that yellow saddle?


    Well done mate Working on bikes is not only satisfying, it's surprisingly straightforward ... and there's not much you can stuff up that your lbs can't unstuff. l
    Be warned, you have stepped onto a steep and slippery slope.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    Sorry for the poor quality iPhone photo. I'm new here, but I've been hanging around and enjoying everyone's bikes.

    Here's my recent build. Not sure about the frame on this one, all I know is that it's stamped "Made in Britain" under the bottom bracket. The old paint job was pretty mucked up, so I had it powder coated.

    I really like what you got goin' on right here. Gimmie a brake (or two and a freewheel (ducks)) and some different pedals and I'd have a real nice time riding that bike.
