As you may be able to tell by the title of this thread, I'm a little bit unsure of something, that I'm wondering if you could help me out with.
I'm looking to convert my geared road bike into a single speed bike. And to be honest I've done the majority of it. I'm stuck however with the back wheel. The bike is a 2008 Dawes Giro 200, and the back wheel is stock.
When I removed the cassette, there literally appeared to be nothing, no extensions or anything, which seemed really weird to me (wheels, I don't know anything about). I've had a look through Sheldon Brown's website, and it would appear I have a threaded (thread-on) freewheel. Obviously just using a single speed kit won't do the job, as there is nothing to attach it to.
Here comes the question! What do I need to do/use?
I've been having a think, and maybe Googling a few ideas, but what it appears to myself is that I would be able to use a freewheel such as the Shimano ones you can buy. Being British, I'm using websites such as Chain Reaction Cycles and Winstanley's to try and find suitable things, but I really could use a prod in the right direction.
