    How should I rebuild my Fuel?

    Some of you may remember that parts off my bike were stolen last May (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y25...0/CIMG1268.jpg), so now is the time to upgrade as it's more and more like summer outside. So here is what needs to be replaced:

    Fork
    Headset
    Cables
    Saddle/Seatpost
    Disc-brake on front.
    Single Speed cog and whatever else
    Chain tensioner?

    I'm leaning towards a rigid front fork and possibly converting the rear cassette into a single speed, but keeping the front crankset/derailler. Is that too silly? I only do mostly road/cross country (as a student). I like the 3 speed idea.

    Fork: http://www.universalcycles.com/image...dium/43498.jpg ?
    Headset: something cheap
    Cables:...
    Saddle/Seatpost: something cheap online
    Disc-brake: no idea

    Budget: 400 max.

    Yes.

    The whole idea behind fewer speeds is simplification, and you're suggesting accomplishing this in the most complicated (and least practical) way possible.
