I have an old late 90's Raleigh M20, I want to convert it to a single speed bike.
I have been researching how to do it but it is a bit overwhelming. It seems like converting a bike is something that looks way easier that it is. I would rather do it myself, I enjoy mechanics, but I am very busy and don't have a ton of time, and I don't want to mess up my bike. Then I wont have a bike at all.
So I am considering taking it in to the local bike shop and asking him (it is a small one man op) to convert it to a single speed.
Will he think I am crazy? Is this something that mechanics even do? And could anyone give me a ballpark idea of how much it is likely to cost? $50? $2,000?
