Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

schwinn continental "fix"

I am looking to convert an old continental and am curious what if any fixed cog will fit in place of the cassette or if I have to buy a new wheel. I know it is a piece to fix, but I already have a fixed bike and my wifes grandparents gave me this bike.

I am looking to keep it cheap and would prefer to be able to just thread a cog and some spacers on, but I just don't know anything about this bike.

Have you removed the cassette from the back wheel?

No, not yet. I am just trying to get an idea of what I need first. I will probably start tearing into it over the next couple of weeks.

Mucho Gracias. That should get me started, and gives me some pretty good reference points.
