I have been looking for quite some time now and I thought that I would take the plunge.
My 18 year old son was given a 1993 cannondale M700 in poor shape. He asked me to build him a single speed for him to use at college. The only good parts are the frame,seatpost,stem,bars,cranks and the forks. I am not sure where to start. I think we may change the fork to acomidate a road tire, this youls need a reducer from 1 1/4 to 1 1/8 . The rear could be more dificult. Any ideas? Should I keep or replace existing cranks and just loose some or the chain rings.
I don't want to go to expensive since alot of bikes get stolen on campus. Any information would be helpfull.Thanks.
