Answer to: How do I convert my road bike to a fixed gear?If i was you i wouldn't. I ride a conversion and they are full of issues. Track frames are the way forward im afraid. Conversions need chain tugs really to be skid-able. The chain will loosen with every skid. Eventually your frame will start to bend due to the pressure applied during skidding. If you are going to convert it i would run a front brake and try not to skid stop do many times. i would advise getting a track frame but converions can still be fun but just a bit of hard work.
