I do like old bikes that are converted into fixed gear. Probably because I like vintage bikes in general. Well despite the issues that Elaine is currently having Ricky decided to convert a Chinese road bike.
The problem is you never know what issues you would run into. The first one that Ricky had was while trying to open the threaded headset the fork broke off! Then we realized that this second hand bike must have had a crash as the fork was completely bent backwards.
