Building up another retro, fixie parts anyone??wspokes
Oct 30, 2002 4:28 AM
Well, I ordered two frames again and they have arrived. I was pretty pleased with the looks of the one Aquilla I had sold at T-town, you remember the transparent light green one Humma Hah, Spirito? Anyway, I decided to order another and build it up as a fixie. BUT, they had two frames in my size and made me an offer I could refuse...so I got two for under $100. Now I am going to build the aquilla up with excess parts I have lying around, should be no problem and turn the FD into a winter/beater fixie. Always more projects. So I am considering what type of fixie crankset to toss on. I saw Spirito posted some from renaissance but so far, my experience there has been pretty sad. Anyone have a cheap crankset similar to the Galli or anything else?? I like 175mm crankarms. I need to locate a nice "Cheap" wheelset as well.

champagne on a beer budget...but I am allergic to beer so I guess I have to settle for nightrain or mad dog!
