i have a few old road bikes i want to turn into single speeds but i dont wanna spend the money on a new wheelset...whats the cheapest/easiest way to get them on the road...it would be nice if i could use the 27" wheels they came with...and i have one with 700's on it...any help would be appreciated...thanks
dont even have to redish, you can flip the chainring to the inside of the crank spider and put a lockring behind the singlespeed freewheel. it wont be perfect, but if you keep the chain tension up, itll work fine.
yep I agree - replace the freewheel with a BMX single cog freewheel and see how it goes. Redish if necessary. It helps if the hub is older and you're pulling off a 5/6 speed. I did that on an old wheelset, works fine.
