    so i was lookking at this bike and i really like it i was wondering if i could convert it to use with a single speed rim? or would it have any negative effects? thanks
  1.  
    just get a track bike, why use a TT frame as a "fixie"?

    converting mountain bike into fg? like really? just get one of each, therefore youll HAVE every bike to ride everyday. i hope you dont convert your bike everyday... i feel bad for the threads.

    and if its cheap, why not get a EXPENSIVE bike?

    the reason i havent been able to ride my bike is because i was recently in a car accident and i cant ride my bike for a few months broke my collar bone. and the reason im not buying expensive bikes is because im getting cheap bikes at a bike collective where they range anywhere from 100-200 for some good quality bikes and fyi i already have a 10speed road bike a mountain bike and like 3 bmx bikes all given to me or from the collective. Now regarding my first question i was just wondering if it was possible without putting too much strain on the frame or anything like that

    You will seriously fuck up that frame if you try to squeeze a 120mm-spaced "single speed rim" into the dropouts. And you can get the Planet X track frame for like $400 used if you're patient.

      Not to support the idea of getting this frame, but the spacing would be 130mm right? So there would be no squeezing. In fact, Ben at VELOMINE (velomine.com for all your illest noise fixie needs) could respace a sweet SUN M13 DEUCE BLACK ANODIZED TO FORMULA/ORIGIN 8 wheelset which will make the bike as a whole that much aero. Or at least it will make up for the non aeroness of the risers or whatever.

      Does








      Not












      Exist












      Take










      And










      EXIT

      if you can afford a planet x stealth you might as well buy a track specific frame or risk looking like an idiot

      He clearly doesn't care about looking like an idiot. Hah
