so since i broke my collar bone and my cycling is done for a few months, i figured id BUILD anew bike.
heres the direction i figured id go (feel free to step in anywhere)
look for a decent shape old 10 speed (preferably a raleigh, trek, norco, bianchi, any other brands to look for?)
i wanna make it single speed so i figure ill paint it (since all the components are comin off eh, unless is this a no-no depending what i find?)
all i really need to do off the bat is remove the derailleurs and shorten the chain to the gear (front and back) i like most (for now) correct, until i get "more into it"?
i wanna look for double butted right? (i believe this is what that means right?)
anything else i should look into for now? still gotta go thrift store hopping so dont kill me yet
