So, I currently have a Fuji Newest 2.0 and that's my current rider for when I do all of my bike tours.
My buddy bought a small road bike frame for his g/f but they broke up, now his loss is my gain
He gave it to me and it's a Nishiki frame, pretty much needs a lot of work. I've never done much to my bike besides changed the pedal and tires so I'm asking you pros here what I should start doing first.
My intention is to turn her into a single speed for fixie for cruising around town and it would be a great workout for me to train with in between the bike tours that I do.
I will take a couple snap shots of her soon and show you what she currently looks like.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been reading online about the differences between single speed and fixed gear bike and i'm still unsure of which route to take. I would love to try a fixie out since ppl keep mentioning that its sooo addicting, but a bit scared that i'll constantly have to pedal, especially down hill.
But as for restoring the bike, i have no clue where to start . I definitely need new everything...but I don't know where to begin or how to find out if I'm buying the right parts for what i'm going for..
