So a couple of months ago I bought a 1990 Steel Specialized Hardrock Sport. The frame is in really good condition. I ditched the rims and got some used ones. I have decided to make it a single speed set up for mountain biking. I live in ky so there is some pretty steep stuff around here. I am just talking trail riding though...nothing crazy. I was wondering what size cog to use in the rear....the chain ring is 28, 38, 48. I was probably going to use the 38...but wouldn't be agains using either of the others.
Also I am stripping all the paint off and have acquired some decals for it. I am going to make it a raw steel finish and put a buttload of clear coats on it. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
Lastly is single speed mountain biking a good idea or popular?
