I have an early 90's steel MTB frame (built like a tank) that I have dreams of turning into a fixie juggernaut.

It has vertical dropouts which I would like to replace with track dropouts. Just wondering if anybody has those skills around here.

I think I can get the work done for around $100 by Bob Brown, but it's been a while since I looked into it (I just looked it up, it's $150 now, although I'm sure he would do an awesome job).

Just thought I would ask.

My theory has always sort of been use forums for announcing and active discussion. Wiki for referencing things later, archiving info, and other bits of info that just don't seem to fit on the forum.
