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)

Is Redishing required

Reading all the Internet info for fixed conversions causes me lots of confusion.
Is it required to dish a wheel? Going back and forth whether I'm buying a new/used set of 700 track wheel or using the existing 27" wheels that I have (has fixed hub). What's the deal with this?
Also is the getting a correct chainline that hard of a process. Seems complicated when reading everything, but hoping it all just falls in place.

Yes, redish your wheel. It can cause some handling issues that you might be able to live with but would be better off fixing from the get go.
