Im in the process of restoring my gitane to ride back and forth to work(wich is like 30 miles total) and i thought itd be cool to make it a single speed instead of a ten speed.
I have a few questions though.
Do i need to change out my cassete?
If i need a new cassete, couldnt i just modify my old one?
If i cant modify my old cassete, could i use one from a bmx wheel, so that i get that clickclickclick sound?
Would i need to shorten my chain?
I wont be considered a "hippster" just because i have an old bike that i converted into a single speed will i?
