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)

Fixed Gear Conversion [New]

Basically just bought this bike from the community shop round the corner and I basically have no idea what I need to buy to convert the bike like I have worked on BMX's and stuff when I was younger but that's pretty standard it's just a bike I want to use for uni and would love some help on where to get started

Any tips advice please please please give me... basically only wanted the frame now wanna turn it into a fixed gear.
