    Hi everyone! I decided to start my first ever project and build my own fixie. I bought a nice Holdsworth vintage frame and I would like to "upgrade it" with modern components (crankset, pedals, wheelset, stem, handlebars, seatpost etc). I'm looking for tips, advice, suggestions on how to find all the parts I need. I would love to keep the cost down but also to build a lightweight bike. To start with something important, any ideas in terms of wheels? Would you also try to find a carbon for to keep the weight low? Thank you for your help!! David

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the fixies world but I decided to build my own bike. I'm looking for a lightweight frame. I would like to use a carbon fork and light steel frame but I'm open to suggestions. I'd like to start with a frame that doesn't cost a fortune, something around 150/200 quid. Any suggestions on old frames or is there any professional maker amongst you who could help? Thanks very much and hope you are all well and safe.

    David
