So I went and picked up a bmx with 3 spoke rims(!) that needs some work done to it(crank rebuild, new brake lines, pads, tires, handle bars, grips, and seat).
I think I also want to find a vintage-ish road bike and get the single speed conversion done to it. I'm sure some of the fixie guys here can help me with that when I get a bike. I think I've seen fixed/non fixed rims so that's what I'll be looking for because I'd like to try fixed but have the option of non fixed for the massive hills up here in the burbs.
Thanks for all the help guys.
Someone should really organize a night ride, I'd totally be up for it.
