Hi, what started as a stupid idea turned into a quick obsession with mates.
Always had a soft spot for fixies. So now that I have disposable income, I picked up a crummy old raleigh for $10
looking to learn more about this culture. I already have my vision of what I want to do but please push me in the right direction:
plan to get a L shape stem, fixie conversion, respray, replace what needs to be replaced, some over night parts from japan and those curved race handle bars
I actually have no idea what I’m doing. so suggestions would be much appreciated.
car was a money pit not this…
^^ than wasn’t harsh and your right. Do what he said and if ya really get into it spend the money on something decent with horizontal dropouts for starters and a nice “quill” stem (thats the L shape thingy) in conclusion DUDE, DON’T FUCKING BOTHER!!!
Listen to the FOA Mafia.
It won’t be a cheap commuter, it will be a very expensive, yet also very crap commuter. That always breaking, probably making you late for work.
I’ve been there. I spent soo much money on and old Raleigh actually. And by the time I was able to actually ride it, I could have had quite a nice off the shelf thing. Instead of the POS I ended up with.
Sorry for being blunt, and welcome. Ha
