Cheap steel hub okay for fixing?
I've got a mid-80s schwinn very basic 10 speed I'd like to experiment with fixing. It has cheap pressed steel hubs. Anyone foresee any problems (esp. safety issues) with converting this hub/bike to fixed gear? I'm not looking for this to become a serious bike, just an experiment, but I don't want to kill myself in the name of curiosity.
