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)

specialized crossroads

ive found a specialized crossroad hybrid bike that has been completely taken apart for a cheap price, i think the drop out is verticle but im not sure, would this make a good fixed gear bike?

Well, how cheap? If it has vertical dropouts it's probably not worth the time, money and sweat for you for any price imo. I don't think it's an especially good choice personally. Pretty much any random 70s/80s steel bike will be similarly bulletproof but more stylish and fun to ride imo.
