I got this steel road frame recently. Since I already have two road bike(1 alu 1 steel), I am thinking of turning this one into a fixie.
However, the BB lug of this frame has this special reinforcemnet, which is supposed to minimize flex. and as I was pressing the rear triangle, it is really hard to bend. Not even 5mm. I certainly do not want do destroy the frame, would you be comfortable bending this frame?
Don't bend, just space the axle...problem solved (nm)bungalowbill
