A nice little Saturday project.
Went to one of the local shops and found a used wheel with a fixed hub. After unceremoniously removing all that shifting crap and a little fiddling, I'm now a proud owner of a fixie (though I still have my "trainer brake" on the rear fork).
There are still a few things that need to be done with it. Rear wheel needs to be better aligned and I'm thinking about getting a new crankset/chain ring since the road bike gearing isn't letting me get a completely straight chain. Plus, I'm not too comfortable with the quick release rear... the shop owner said I can drop off my bike during the week and get a solid axle instead.
I'd be out riding, but it started to rain as soon as I had finished. Though I rode around the block a couple times just to see what I'm getting myself into. I'm looking forward to my first wreck.
Anyway, just kinda rambling and a little excited. Though I'd share.
