My names Tom and I'm unemployed. I live in Lincoln Nebraska and it's not that bad.
Right now I'm in the process of converting my now junker Peugeot from a single speed to fixed gear.
It's been a slow process getting this far and I've learned that It's going to take a bit of money to do what I want. Right now it consists of random parts that I could get to fit, i.e. Varsity stem, no name seat post, suntour wheels with a shimano ss cog screwed on, the original cottered crank, bullhorns and an old schwinn front brake. 48x17
Welcome to the forums.
Good luck with your conversion and the mechanics sub forum are there to help if you need it.
