Karate monkey-switching between fixed and gears?
So, I am think about putting together a karate monkey with 29" wheels for city and offroad use. I ride fixed on pavement and trails. I also want to use the bike with gears for a light load , long distance tour every year or so. Does anyone know how difficult it would be to swap between gears and single speed periodically? Would I need a different wheel set for each setup? What else would I need to do the swap? Is this is a really bad idea? It would be great to have one bike for all of these interests...
