We [OK, Brook and Evan] converted my current 10-speed Fuji Team 1985 road bike into a fixie. New Nitto Randonneur touring drop bars, Cinelli cork bar tape, Evan's old yellow Deep-V back wheel, pedal clips/straps, small brake lever. And the taking off of all unnecessary parts, such as the derailleurs, bottle cage, reflectors, geared back wheel, most of the brakes, including the back brake. Lightness and relief! Accuse me of hipsterdom [noooo], but I did it because I think I'm going to enjoy riding a lot more. Connected to the road and no lazy coasting! A very good start to Summer 08: Create!
