Miyata Elevation 200 700c FG Conversion

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.

Frame:
Miyata Elevation 200 chromoly frame ('92 or '93)

Fork/Headset:
Miyata chromoly unicrown fork

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Sakae converted road cranks

Pedals:
Wellgo platforms

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Unknown hub, unknown rim, Duro Easy Ride 700x35c tire

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Profile Racing fixed hub, Weinmann rim, Duro Easy Ride 700x35c tire

Current Stage Info:

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).

I'll be sure to update as I add parts... wheels fit fine with plenty of clearance for the 35s I'm getting... next step is to get the cranks installed.
