    My Cart Path Crusier

    I built is one from a Cromoly MTB frame . Using the small chainring , the bike spins out around 9 MPH . But that's what I wanted . No speeder , just a cruiser . Makes it easy to tackle the hills getting out of my subdivision .
    Not finished with it , need to build some type of crash ring to make the crank/chainring look a little better and add a chain guard . I have a chain guard , I just need to paint it black or red , and attach it . Kirby

    Nice. You could even put the middle chain ring and FD back on & make it a 2 speed.

    The rear derailleur would be needed to take up the chain slack though.

    You're right. A chain tensioner or RD wouldn't look as clean, would it?
