Yo Andy, forgot to ask you man. You get your new whip in the mail yet? Post some pics of that shit.


As far as parts go, here's my two cents:
Pedals: MKS Sylvan Track
Clips: Any double strap cage, they're all pretty much the same thing
Straps: Toshi doubles
Rear wheel: deeper rim, and a nice ass hub. One of the most important parts on a track bike. OR.... somethin hyphy would be an Aerospoke. They're pretty heavy and so should be able to hang back there.
Front wheel: I'd go Open Pro. Laced to somethin light. Front wheels aren't extremely crucial



I've got feelings for this bike man. Do it up right. She deserves it

Is there any significant difference between vertical/horizontal dropouts besides the way you put in the back wheel?

I'm about to buy a saddle from a friend but I don't know which to choose. Which should I get and why? Selle San Marco Ponza or Selle Italia Flite Classic? I would love to hear your opinions, preferences and experiences before I make my choice.

If you're buying from a friend, is there any way you can actually ride on each? Saddles are subjective so you gotta let your ass decide

The bike in your link has a threadless headset The nitto pearl stem will only work with a threaded fork and headset.

You would need to cut down your fork and get it threaded, also change your headset to a threaded headset.

Hello all,
I am riding an older Reynolds 501 lugged Trek frame that has been repainted by me in a green and black checkerboard fade currently as a single speed. The rear drops, not extended horizontal but workable, are 126mm currently housing a 130mm freewheel with a simple conversion. Finally got it adjusted to run without a tensioner.

Anyway, I'm looking to convert this machine into something truly sexy, a fixie. I would prefer to build up the rear wheel for experience sake ans will get around to building a matching front later. I am a college student so a bit tight on fun money. I was hoping this group of experts would have recommendations for a reliable rear hub, probably 36 spoke, matte black, flip-flop if possible, bla bla bla, that won't break my budget. I've seen the AllCity stuff and was mostly wondering if there are any major alternatives/ advantages/disadvantages to them?

I ride most of the year, converting to a mountain bike when the roads get too nasty for my 23's. Most of my road riding is in town, not quite San Fran but Golden, CO has it's hills, especially headed west.

Recommendation and advisement will be most appreciated.
Thanks

you can get frames painted at any place that does powdercoating and auto painting usually. also the ponza feels like shit

with vertical dropouts you can't tension the chain. not ideal for fixed gear bikes

(talking about this kind of vertical dropout)

This is my first bike. It's a total trash bag. Picked it up for $100.



I'm changing it up a bit. Bought some new brakes, levers, black tyres, flat-bar handlebars, black grips and white cables. Will look different.
