Nice looking bike frame. I swear that chain looks big enough to be on a piece of farm machinery.

It looks great. I had good luck welding the back side of my freehub and running it as you show with spacers to get the chainline right. Two little dabs of intense heat and it's fixed!

headed for the hills! I figured, I might as well go for broke.....I went to the local cycling club hill climb course......4 steep hills in succession! I can't tell you the feeling I got as I crested the last climb, while still breathing (heavily, but still breathing) and with my knees still intact....it was incredible! Elation to the max!

When you start riding fixed up hills, you soon realize if you keep your knee, pedal and weight aligned properly without swinging the bike too much or not enough you can pedal at a real slow cadence and not destroy your knees. There is something really cool about the satisfaction you get out of climbing with a fixed gear.
