Does anyone have experience converting a touring bike to ss or fixed? I've got a Rush that I use for everyday riding, but I'm thinking it would be good to have a bike for pulling a trailer and carrying around a lot of crap. Frame ideas? SS or fixed? It's Chicago, so I definitely don't need gears, but wonder if fixed might make it difficult to pull a trailer.
Any other ideas then for an ss pulling/hauling machine?
If I was doing it, I'd just get a really really really low gear on a bike and spin like a madman. At that point you wouldnt be going very fast but it'd be a great workout. Its definitely possible, but it would be difficult on the starts if you were pulling much weight. It would also heavily rely on how many stops your going to be encountering. If your only going to hit a stop once every 5 miles, I say go with it. Starts may be tough, but once every 5 miles ain't bad.
