I'm trying to get all the terminolgy down. What each means as well what is needed to make the conversion. I tried search w/ "single speed fixed differences" and found nothing. This is a loaded question so all I need is to be pointed in the right direction....ie... web site or such Thanks Charlie
For answers to SS questions:
SS lets you coast (freewheel), fixed does not. A fixed gear is a single speed but a single speed is not necessarily a fixed gear.

Wow that was fast. Thanks just what I was looking for. You must be rider X from the MORE site...NO? We have spoken on that site. Avalon won't be rideable for weeks after the recent rains, with more in the future. I'm glad I ride road as well. Thanks again, I may have more Q's in the future. Balto Charlie
