This is an early '90s Miyata Elevation 200 26" MTB that I am going to try to convert into a 700c fixed gear FGFS/gravel bike. There aren't many frames that this would work on because of crank/chainring/tire clearance issues, no horizontal dropouts, etc., but I believe this particular frame is the perfect candidate. I will be posting new photos as the build progresses.

Everything turned out better than expected on this build. I added a bunch of random parts that I had lying around plus a small front rack. The bike rides extremely well and will be great for commuting, plus it's light and strong enough to handle the style of FGFS riding that I like to mess around with (@burdphil on Instagram).
