Winter time is a great time to ride fixed gear. The days are shorter and fixed riding gives you a great workout in a relatively short period of time. Below is my latest fixed project. I built it up yesterday.

Frame: IRO Angus- drilled for front brake only. Reynolds 631 tubing. If you want to run a rear brake, check out the Mark V

Wheels: Mavic CXP22 rims laced to formula track hubs

Drive train: FSA double cranks using a single 42T ring and short stack BMX chainring bolts. Dura Ace 16t track cog and lock ring

Brake: Front only- Chucks Bikes generic black caliper and Tetkro BMX red lever

Saddle: San Marco Regal- Richard Sachs red

Bar/Stem- Generic quill stem spray painted black. Bars are Specialized MTN bars cut down to about 44cm wide. Red BMX grips.

Total Cost: just shy of $600
Fun Factor: Priceless :cool: :cool:

If you are interested in fixed riding, stroll over to the Fixed Forum. I've recently added some resources(stickies at the top of the forum page) for fixed geared riding.

Just for something different. I have 4 fixed bikes. We'll see how long they last before I go to bullhorns or drops
Update. The flat bars didn't last long. I did 25 miles tonight and my hands were killing me. My bike is now sporting homemade bullhorns...:)
