Ive read the sheldon brown articles but i still have questions. I'm converting an old 10speed road bike so a single speed (freewheel). Can i use the same back wheel and just remove the freewheels and replace with spacers/a new freewheel and whats the best way to go about getting the inside sprocket off if i have a 1 piece crank system? thank you.
my bike Owns me+my wallet
if you have a wheel with A free-wheel cassette, you can use the cassette, redish the wheel and use a single speed cassette,
If its a cassette hub, you can set a cog and some spacers
how can i tell the difference? and how can i remove the freewheels?
If you have a 1pc crankset, I'd go dollars to donuts that you have a freewheel instead of a freehub. What you'll need to do is remove the entire cassette and thread on a BMX freewheel.

the park FR-2 is a two prong freewheel tool:
these can be found in LOTS of local bike shops (LBS), or do a google search for online outlets
