This is just in the thinking stages, but since the wheels are almost kaput, and the headset is just about dead, and the brakes just suck, I was thinking of stripping my bike down to the frame and converting it to a single speed. It's a Specialized Sirrus A1 sport. Is this possible?
This wouldn't a project I would do until fall, when I get back into doing more weight training in the off season and I'm crying everyday as I gaze out the window at all the snow.
I love my bike. I just can't see myself trashing it ever. It was my first bike in years. I'd like to keep it and do something different with it.
