My name is Loren and I am from Sacramento, Ca. Here is my fixie project.... I found this 10 speed on the side of the road "dead", and I stripped it down and am in the process of creating my first fixie. I am going to paint it and get a better crank and stem for it!!!!
Definitely not bad for free.... and some persistence and work and you got a nice bike!! I get looks everywhere.
Thanks so much for the site, I love it and come back to it daily just for inspiration!!!
