Sopron Fixie: Fix at Home Dec 13, 2010

Part of me cringes when I see cable stops and guides angle-grinded off a frame. Then the other part of me thinks at least the frame is going to be rode a lot more. This video is a great guide for anyone who wants to hack the life out of a road frame and turn it into a conversion. Check out Sopron Fixie for the second installment anyday now.

Personally, I’d keep it as is and just make it fixed but that’s the purest in me.

    awesome bike!

    but they probably have permanent brain damage as a result. that first paint room didn’t look to have any ventilation at all. i hope i’m wrong.

    USE IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA – that doesn’t include just opening the window.

    Why wreck a decent road frame to make a crappy fixed gear, when the internet has made cheap shitty track frames just a click away?

    mmmm, get that neon paint right in the bottom bracket…

    it is not a wasted bike, it hasn’t been “wrecked”. it’s custom, it’s cool. the paint looks pretty good considering that they’re using spray cans. a bit of paint in the bottom bracket shell won’t hurt anything.

    my flourescent spray paint was jammed then i bought one more can and its jammed again. those guys were sooo lucky
