    I guess it is a pretty decent bike after we went over every single bolt and spoke Everything and I mean EVERYTHING was loose so I make him buy some red thread locker and we went to town . Now lets see how the welds hold up after some China girl good vibrations

    o.k.I'm in.Just ordered one should be here next week.($5 shipping is cheaper than gas).probably just ride it like it is for awile till I get some more $ up.My first 700c fixie,I'm excited.I actually checked one out in person about 3 weeks ago before I saw them online.VERY NICE FRAME.A lot could be done here down the road as far as upgrades go.This could actually HELP the bike shop people in the long run.What starts out as a cheap thrill ends up costing you $500 in the end.if your lucky.Or you could just slap a motor on it!lol

    Have you tried using a chain wrapped around something stationary or another sproket?

    nope.I think I'm gonna put a shimano coaster brake hub on it latter when I ad a motor.Just gonna leave it a normal bike for now anyway.I'm afraid I dont have the right tools or know how to get it off without braking the wheel.

    the outer jam nut is left hand thread, turn it cw to take it off. the sprocket is normal right hand thread, turn it ccw to take it off, the hub is stepped, the nut and sprocket are different sized threads.

    I made a MB wheel with a flip flop hub by dremeling out a childs bike chainring, and welding it to a crank lock ring.

    I know this thread is a little old but I have a question. Could you provide a couple close up pics of how you mounted the rear sprocket? I am very interested in this build thanks.
