Is it drilled front and rear for brakes?
What length are the crank arms?
What is the B.C.D. of the crank? (144, 130, 110)
What is the largest tire you can fit?

Any problems or issues with the bike?
Any suggestions for changes/upgrades from the stock setup?

Thanks!

I had one. Sold it recently to build the new bike.
It is drilled for both front and rear brake.
Not sure about crank length, I would guess it depends on frame size.
BCD is 110mm. You can probably fit up to 28c or 30c tires.

Pretty sweet bike, I would definitely get rid of the cranks though. Cheap a$$ MTB crank with very wide Q-factor(I would guess designed for triple). I would upgrade to Shimano 105 cranks or comparable. Everything else is OK.

I realized via a search that you had posted yours a few months ago. Is that Central Park in the background? What is a good fixed gear combo to ride in the park on the loop?

I do have a single-speed 42x18 that I road out and back to Coney Island this weekend (30 miles) for Nathan's Hot Dogs but I felt I was spinning too much and not really getting a workout. Although there is nothing like burping up hot dogs and avoiding the tourists while trying to climb the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan!

Did I posted a pic of the bike? Can't remember. I do live in NYC though.
I really can't help with gearing since I believe everyone needs to figure that out on their own. I had it set up 39-16, and for me, it was a spinning/recover-ride/easy bike. I can hang with moderate paced group ride(18-20mph pace), but not with fast paceline for long(25mph).
I guess it all depends on what you're looking for in a fixie.

Not a bad bike for the price. I got rid of mine in part because I wanted to run tires wider than 26C and there was no room in the rear for larger tires. My 58CM frame came with 175mm cranks (seemed a bit long for a track bike).

The parts are all pretty cheap but fine for an entry level bike.
