This is the first fixed gear bike I've ever built. It began life as a lower level road bike that initially came with stem mounted friction shifters and safety levers. I got rid of all that to make it more sporty, I redished the rear wheel, slapped on a 17t Sprocket and 42t Chainring to make it what is now! This bike was sitting in a metal recycling facility and now I use it every morning to get to work. Super stoked on my little budget commuter.
