I built this up for fun, and to sell. My first fixed gear build. It is a pretty sweet riding bike. I put fat cyclocross tires on it, so it can go anywhere. Plenty of clearance. All in all, very fun bike.
The last pic posted is the "BEFORE" pic, from the day I got it. I bought the bike from a local drunk that needed money. So I got a good deal!
