Converting a single speed cruiser to multi-speed bike?
so, I know almost nothing about bikes, and by "almost nothing," I mean ABSOLUTELY nothing at all.
So, I bought this schwinn beach cruiser. It doesn't have any gears, it's pretty rusty and I think I got ripped, but regardless...
I live in a very hilly area. On a college campus. And, I totally overestimated my strength with these hills, so I was wondering if it's possible to tack on some gears to my bike to help me out a little.
Would adding gears be less/more/as expensive as a possible electric conversion?
