anybody have tips for finding second hand / old fixies from the 80/90s? how do i know if it will fit me?

@aynish Craigslist, or see if your town has a community bike shop.

Most bikes can be turned into fixies even if they are not one (here's a good link on the subject: sheldonbrown.com/fixedgear.htm)

Any old 80/90s mountain bike can be converted with a little work into a good, solid, fixie.

You will know they will fit if you get a bike that is the right size for you (another good link: sheldonbrown.com/fixedgear.htm)

@aynish visit the local bike repair shops, they'll point you to the right place if they don't carry it themselves.
