    I like it!!
    I am waiting for my first engine to arrive. The bike I have is also a road bike. Its an old Hiawatha from Gambles. I would rather find a bike with wider tires and a better seating arrangement for an old guy but if I am not mistaken I can later remove all the parts without ruining the bike and put them on a differant bike (is this correct)?
    But I want to ask you how you like the ride on the narrow wheels and hunched over position?

    ok one i ride fixies alot now so check that out to did you get a origin 8 flip flop hub or did you get a furmula hub and also did you get the 63cm high flang or a low fland if high the you have to grove the hub for the cog to fit

    and you can fita 700c on a 27inch frame and still use the stock parts for the bike to work there is like no difrence and if you go with the deep v rims make sure you get MSW wall rims so you can use the brakes

    now i dont know if bird dog motors still makes it but i saw one time they where seling a free spin setup that treaded to the flip flop hub and it came in locked setup also (i think)



    but if you whant a cheap good frame to use check out origine 8 great good stunt frames to use for fast speeds

    im going to be working on one that will be a origine 8 uno frame with low flang bmx 48 spoke track hub spoked to a sun rim mamonth XL 700c with 35c tires on a 56t to 28-11 gear setup 6 speed with the shift kit from sick bike parts armadeilo tires with twisted oddeesy peddals with sugino crank and BB setup with cerramic bearing hubs not cheap but will hall like 75-80 easy

    once the head is shaved crank arm is on a diet and upgraded spark hope to do 100mph on the salt flats once i get the money to go



    oh yeah my bike shop lost sould fixies is going to be open here soon in college station TX

    check out third coast fixed>com to see what we do here in the third coast

    that all sound great i would though take a look at a shifter kit and get the drivetrain running on the right side it might serve to go faster to have between 37 and 13 teeth like a transmission and it will be less expensive than all of the parts it would require for a clutch you could just get a kit with a centirufal clutch and a pull start option. it would eliminate haveing to use a cluch and then the trhrottle would be your only concern.

    Great work on that roadster.

    I've been saving several old 27" bikes to build the same sort of bike-- lightweight and fast.

    looks like the rims will bend easily, so be careful

    Re: Centurion road bike. Those are awesome! Cheap as dirt now but they were tough and nicely aligned!

    Is that QR hub walking in the dropouts, or is it staying planted?

    700c is a wheel size designation for road bicycles produced after the 27" and 26" (non hooked bead) rims fell out of standard.

    has a lot of sub $500 bikes that are single speed "29er"s with disc brakes.

    Its like a heavy duty 700c rigid mountain bike with disc brake wheels.
