Would SS&FG be interested in a DIY article on converting an old 10-speed to a single speed? I just finished finished doing this, and while Sheldon Brown's article was helpful, I had to ask a lot of questions here and on the C&V forum for the details.
Yeah go for it, more pictures the better
Even though there's so much stuff out there, even Sheldon has some "holes" and isn't very step by step
I think everyone that's converted has had to do research on multiple sources and ask a lot of questions
Maybe it'll get thrown into the newbie stickied thread

if you're referring to me, i've got a shogun mixte. i think i'm just going to throw on a 107mm bb with sugino xd2 cranks, measure it, and then see if a freewheel matches up. my hub width is too small for the frame atm (120mm in what seems to be 130mm), so I'll either have to find some spacers, or just crank the frame in evenly. not going to derail this thread. pm me if you're feeling altruistic.
