ok so got a p street from a guy on craigs list for a great price! i took it out in the woods once so far tottally stock with slick tires on it i quickly found out i couldnt hang with the guys on the full suspension santa cruz's! So i bought a pair of Panaracer fire tires and threw those bad boys on there. Now heres what im wondering how hard is it going to be to convert thist bad boy to something that might have o lets say 9 gears? do theymake bolt on derailer hangers? or a verson that i could weld on very easily?
Iv already came to the conclusion ill have to lace a new rear hub into my rim no big deal... allso i was wondering if there is a diference in the drop out width between (ie a bike with gears or a single speed freewheel bike)? i guess thats my main concern, if i can get a (im only assuming) wider rear hub in there?
Im not to knowledgable in the mountaain bike world but i am by no means a moron.....im just coming from riding 20+ years of bmx and a little bit of fixer gear riding. Basicly im looking to make up an indestructable free ride bike that will put up with what i throw at it. wheight isnt really and issue. lets hear it boys and girls throw them ideas at me !
