building an urban assault bike, out of a beach cruiser
Ive been lurking this board for a while, and Im starting a beach cruiser project.
I've got the bike, an old huffy, and I have some new parts to get it rolling but I want to continue past that.
I was wondering what your thoughts on putting a rigid mtb fork with front bmx brake and going freewheel in the rear, or keeping the coaster and just servicing that.
Ive built a fixie that I later turned into a s/s, so Im not totally lost, but Im really confused with what parts I can use on this bike and the size's... like this
I think I can use it but I dont know if there is a place I can look up the sizing I need to know and also if it'll fit my beach cruiser front wheel... and if it cant fit the cruiser tire, what I should be looking for...
and If I decide to go free wheel, can I reuse my coaster hub and slap a freewheel on it?
I dont know where to look for that sort of info and searching google isnt really helping so much.
