Awesome looking bike! Looks extremely clean. With that ratio you'll only get one skid patch though :/

Thanks man! I know nothing about the dropout when i first started to build a fixed gear bike and ends up i got a conversion =( It was like "oh shit! i got a wrong frame!" when the bike mechanic first told me something about horizontal dropout for fixed. I would love to have a track frame when i have the sufficient budget, as i personally love lugged steel frame a lot and it is pretty costly to get a good one ! Since many ppl also started off with a conversion, i will just try to make the best of what i have.

I think a big percentage of people on here started out with a conversion. My first bike was a Stella conversion with the seatpost rusted into place haha i knew nothing of bikes at all and i got a job as a messenger so i had to throw it together. And still im nowere close to getting the bike of my dreams kinda thing but i have plenty of time to get there. I wish my first conversion looked like this!!

yeah I love green frames.
I was so cloese to buying a green & white mash, but am glad that I ended up with the green & white steel 722, steel brought back fond memories as to why I got into cycling in the first place many years ago!... I sold my carbon bike, cause I could not go back after steel. didn't feel right!
keep riding!

Cool! Looking forward to see ur 79' Raleigh Grand Prix! The saddle break-in wont take too long, mine is super comfy now =) The green heritage is so much better than the green mash, u made the right choice! I love steel frame too!
Just keep on spinning!
