i have a old mountain bike that the chain is rusted and the cassete is rusted, brakes are rusted so i was thinking about making it into a fixie
the cassete on a mountain bike has multiple sprockets on it so could i unsrew the cassete and use the small gear?
but also what would i have to do to fix it all together.
mountain bikes coast, and you can rotate the crank arms backwards on a mountain bike but on a fixie that is how you stop. so how would i go about fixing that problem. im new to this and just wanted to fix up my bike. it didnt feel right to have it sit there rusting away.
any help would be very much appreciated
