Ok i gave up riding road bike when I was 15, too much like effort, and have now spent the last 11 years riding BMX. I've decided to start road biking again and the simplicity of a fixie looks fun. I'm thinking about building one from scratch from an 1980's steel frame. Is this a good way to go if you enjoy spending hours building things? I dont mind cutting the drop outs off the frame and welding on horizontal dropouts but I've seen jump mountain bikes with a little dog leg thing that lets you run single speed on verticle drops, could I fit this on a road bike?
