    I still have mudguards and a new front lever to put on, but it's back up and running, and with a much more sensible chain line;)

    Complete virgin on this sort of thing, but I didn't think you could ride fixed with drop-outs.......? Otherwise I've got an old frame and wheels I could convert.

    The dropouts are not vertical. They are kind of gently upward sloping horizontal, with little adjusters in the end. I did some checking, and apparantly they are fine. They are forward sloping as well, which means I can quite easily fit mudguards and still change a wheel if I puncture.

    The question is, what did you do with gears?

    Because they looked rather good for retro kit, the suntour shifters for instance, they are the best non shimano/campag shifters you can get hold of, they work with anything, they have a form of micro click indexing which makes them easy to use, and was that rear mech an old Campag?

    Its a nice fixie, but I think it would have been an equally nice retro ride

    The shifters, chainrings, deraillieurs and back brake went to a lucky e-bayer for over £20:biggrin:
