Looks like I’ll be building a fixie…

I made a deal with my 12 year old daughter: Get your grades where I want them, and I’ll help you (emphasis on help) build a bike of your choice. The neighborhood fixie influence (i.e. the couple of 12 year old boys in the neighborhood) has been noticed, so a-fixed-gear-we-will-go.

I’m going to try and persuade her to go single speed instead. We’ll see how it goes. Either way I’m betting it’ll be a flip-flop on the back

Anyone got a steel frame laying around? Maybe 52cm-ish??

    I’ve got a steel frame, but nowhere near a 52 (IIRC it’s a 60). Have fun building it up so she can have fun riding it (and yeah, a flip-flop hub sounds like a good idea).
