What’s up gang! Well, after deciding to take my Bianchi Milano off of Craigslist and going for building my own fixie the only thing I need to do now is figure out where to start. I found a 925 Redline frame for 200 bucks at my local bike shop and I think I will start from there. After that though I would like to build most everything else from used parts, maybe except for the hub, think i might get a Surly one. Anybody got any pointers for a guy who wants to do this but is not an expert at bike building? Any websites or books you can point me towards?
