Use a track frame to build a track bike and a tt frame to build a tt bike .yeah you can make it work but you might as well get a track frame to begin with and save yourself the trouble.

Because the TT frame is way too sexyaye. And like for now cycle with track setup. When older when you want to save our knees change to TT setup with brakes. Multi purpose! ;)

Fixed is good because you're fully controlling the bike. Like really cycling. A total different experience. I would want to get a TT frame because I like thick fat frames with straight top tube. :))

^ That makes no sense and doesn't justify why you want to use a (geared) TT frame as a fixed conversion.

Both mtb and road have a similar kinda dropout. Can I convert my mountain bike to a road bike? They're so much more comfortable for the road because of the suspension! How do you think Ultegra will feel on it?

i know someone using a cervelo tt frame as a fixed. sure it looks nice and it is different. but it still has all the road associated bits and pieces hanging off of it so it sorta looks funny. to each their own though.

imho pretty stupid haha

there's load of other frames with thick frames out there.
just get a track frame that fits your aesthetic needs...since that's the only priority at this point.

My last project was converting a Cannondale Multisport tt bike to fixed. I highly recommend using the White Industries Eccentric hub for the rear wheel. They come in different width spacing. The hub will make tension of chain a breeze.
