My first fixed gear build. Total came in under $300 . Thinking about some old school bull moose mtb bars, what's everyone think about that???
62cm double butted cro mo
Sakae sx, flipped the spindle 180 degrees to bring the chainring closer to the frame
Some crazy cheap ebay carbon riser(scary) gb stem drilled to accept recessed nut stem bolt . Bontrager race grips
Tioga spyder/ Kalloy uno
Velocity deep v / IRO hub / double butted spokes/ bontrager cx0 38c
Velocity deep v / IRO hub double butted spokes / ritchey speedmax 40c
Found the bike on Craigslist in rough shape for $40 .Cleaned the frame up , shaved all braze ons, and filled holes with epoxy putty . It's painted with appliance epoxy. After fitting some 25c tires I realized it looked awful with the huge tire clearance , so I stuffed some 40mm tires in there. Turns out most old road bikes built with 27in wheels can fit up to 42mm tires! Foot retention is on the way
