Shimano FFS to single speed
I know this has been brought up before; however, the thread always seems to die out before any real info is given.
I completely disassembled my 1982 schwinn varsity to switch it to single speed. Being fairly ignorant to how technical bike operations work, i thought it would not only be a fun project, but an excellent learning experience. I have learned a lot, and finally have everything cleaned up, polished, and the frame is ready for a repainting.
Then..I hit my first real snag...the FFS.
I have relied heavily on youtube and this forum for most of the issues I have come across, with great success; however, there is almost no info on how to convert this to SS. I'm really just looking for a step by step, or tutorial on how to do it since I am still learning terminology and how things function.
Any help or direction anyone can offer would be more than appreciated!
