    how to convert

    Ok, so I ride a Caad9 5 and love it. My mom has not been riding her old nishiki sport so I would like to convert it to a fixed gear. It sounds like a fun project and it would be cool to have. The only problem is, I have no idea how to go about this. Its very broad, but how do you convert a road bike to a fixie?

    Remove the shifters.
    Remove the deraillers.
    Remove the brakes.
    Remove the brake levers.
    Remove the rear wheel.
    Install a fixed wheel.
    Install a cog.
    Install a lockring.
    Shorten your chain.
    And use the search function while you're at it.
