    Single speed for free! 18 or 21 into a single with no parts.

    A little vid i made on how to make a single speed out of an 18 speed bike for free.
    Hope you like it.
    A fun little project for that junker sitting around!

    I had no idea this was possible. Maybe you should repost this in the mechanics sub-forum just in case they are unaware too.

    my sarcasm meter is broken and as a result I can't tell if you are serious or not
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    That's pretty smart. CAUTION: ONLY ADISABLE ON WALLMART BIKES AND CHEAP DRIVE TRAIN SYSTEMS

    Okay, no sarcasm: This whole video sux.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Oh man, I think my sarcasm may have broken your meter... I've been converting ****ty mountain bikes and old Schwinns for about fifteen years. I have never ridden a bike with more than one speed for more than a day. The only difference is that I just took off the shifting mechanisms and shortened the chain. This dude is taking it too far.
