    Schwinn one-piece crank

    I've got an old Schwinn Traveler that I'm stripping down. I've heard of a BB conversion kit to swap out the one-piece crank, but I've never seen one. I'm not sure I want to go this route, but can somebody post a link where I can buy one or at least see a picture of the kit? Also for those of you who have (or have not) done this conversion do you have any pros and cons for it?

    www.biketoolsetc.com should have them for cheap. in fact i know they do.

    I say just save the money and use your one-piece. For the money you spend on a conversion BB and cranks and chainring (assuming you don't have these lying around) you could just buy another older complete bike with a three-piece-crank.
