I’m looking for a used, fixed gear to convert to a commuter while I wait for all the 2012 freestyle frames/completes to come out. I come from a BMX race/street background and this will be my first bike with larger than 20″ wheels in 10 or 15 years, so my expectations aren’t too high.
I’m pretty much looking everywhere and figured I’d post here as well in case anyone had any leads. I’m trying to keep it under $350 and will be buying within a week (depending on when I get paid (freelancer)). It doesn’t have to be extremely rugged, and mainly just something to ride around while I decide if fixies are for me (though, I think they are).
you could probably get away with up to 58… i think 54-58 is probably your extremes of comfort. i have a couple old frames that you could have for super cheap that i could probably put some parts onto… i’m talking like $50
