Building my first fixed gear bike
Well, after buying a very poor quality fixie for far too much money (based on what I could have got it for online), I'm waiting on an Eastside Fyxation frame, 42 cm drop bar, black tape, track ends, bar ends and a crank kit (I had to take advantage of the 20% off this weekend, and everything ships by UPS for $75--I live in Hong Kong).
This should be good. Up until this week I had no idea what a bottom bracket was or how a wheel was put together. ^_^
I'll be sourcing parts from China via the Chinese version of eBay, as well as buying some on regular eBay and LBSs around town (there are quite a few, but not in my neck of the woods). Hopefully I can have my bike built by Jan, but I'm in no rush. I want to get this done right.
