Ok, I'm here ... the party can start!

Hey everyone, just wanted to say hi. Like most people I rode everywhere when I was a kid, learned to drive and said forget two wheels, I can go faster in four. Then I got a general use mountain bike for riding to and from class when I went to college, figured out that it sucks riding that thing on roads and bought myself a steel frame after I moved 10 miles from campus. Now I just wish I could ride it more often.

I joined the forums because I recently got my hands on a '77-'78 Peugeot UO10 that I'm considering converting to a single speed. Maybe a fixie, but I've never ridden one before and there are plenty of hills here. I'm not too worried about the going up, but the coming down may burn through brakes fairly quickly. Anyway, I'd love any advice or insight you could give.
