I was just wondering if i can convert my aluminum road bike into a fixed gear bike? If so, what is the BEST/SAFEST way to do so?... Reason why is because i have no need for gears due to the fact that i only ride on flat surfaces for short periods of time throughout the day. The dropouts on my bike are perpendicular to the ground by the way... Thanks in advanced!
Yes. The best way to do it is to use a White Industries ENO Eccentric Hub (I don't care that I'm giving a product recommendation here because this is the only product that's ever done what it does), the alternative being using a magic ratio setup. The other part of it is getting set up with the proper chainline up front.
