hey i brought my old 80's kabuki into a bunch of bike shops in my neighborhood and got the about the same quote 175-200@ to convert it from a 10speed to a freewheel/fixed gear bike. with that said i figure it's probably just better to drop an extra 200 or 300$ and get a bike thats infinetly lighter and was designed to be single gear bike. any sugguestions?
one of the stores was willing to sell me a SE LAGER for 470$ which seems pretty cheap to me.
i appreciate the help
