Peugeot Fixie Conversion

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...59#post9128859

If interested please see my original thread above.

These are the before and after shots. learned a lot from the work and keen to try another one. I might chart the total cost and more details later.

I've learned that there's no place to hide on this forum so let's be having your (constructive) criticism....

Your bike turned out great. The original color of the bike was only good for theft deterrent. One thing I would do is get the quick release on the non drive side of the bike.
