New Bike, Le tour
I found a Schwinn Le Tour last weekend. Went and looked at it and it was good looking, fit me, and was ridable. I bought it. Its cardinal red. I got some Tektro R200 brake pulls and rewired the brake cables. I also redid the bar tape because there was masking and electrical tape on there
. Anyway, I am thinking I want to single speed it after looking at some different threads. I would like some input as to what cog and chainwheel combination to use and also what brand would be good. I've been looking at surly. Also, I am toying with the idea of paint. The paint is in decent condition, but is chipped. Minimal rust is present... thoughts? also where could i get decals to go back out it? One more, how can i clean up and polish the brakes and other chrome accents? Is there a specific product or technique? Also how are Velo saddles? Thanks for any help I recieve.
