    Conversion

    Just checking that this bike is capable of being converted into a fixed gear or if it's worth doing. Pros and cons.

    Here's pics of the bike:

    Everything about that bike is a con as a candidate for a fixed fixed/single speed conversion.

    If what your sig says is true, I think you should look elsewhere.

    Could be fun SS conversion but not as fun fixed gear conversion.
