Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

72 Raleigh Gran Prix

So, I got an old-***** Raleigh. Do I need anything special to turn it into a fixie? I got probably most of the parts I need...Do I need something special to make the chain line up other than luck? 700s should fit fine, right? The 27s hubs barely spin. Put a old LX crankset on it and removed the 22 and 34. I was thinking of running a 44x18 or 17.

I rode it and it has a funky raked fork. What would be a good fork upgrade?
