This is more a new skool Fixed Gear Freestyle thing, looks a lot like big BMX/jump bikes, probs a steep head angle and stuff and maybe a highish BB, and probably road style brake calipers if any. Looks like theres a freewheel on the flip flop hub, so doesn't need to be fixed. Could be fun one way or another on road and track. Still making my mind up about fixed, im not sure its for me.

They've come so far though that they basically are big BMX!

I did it the other way and turned my Genesis Io old frame into a Fixed 26er just cos, but its very weird, Gonna put a wide chain on to ride properly on the freewheel for a bit hoping it'll be quite playful then. I'll revisit trying fixed on a 700c lighter bike I know first.
