Jun 12, 2003 6:55 AM
I bought a khs solo one single speed, but what i really want is a fixed gear....so here are my options:

KHS flite 100
or
Build a Surly Pacer up
or
I was thinking about a surly 1 x 1 built to rhino lites with a surly flip flop hub.

What should i do?
you're missing the obvious option...Steve_0

replace the freewheel with a $15 track sprocket. Instant fixed gear.

save some money.

if you insist on going the expensive route; I wouldnt get the pacer; it has vertical drops (IDB)
If the $15 solution is no good, go Vanilla...PdxMark
