From Five to One!

There is a joy to "single speeding"! Just recently, I converted my 5 speed folder into a single speed coaster brake bike, and like it very much!

The way it WAS...

The way it is NOW!

Now the reason for the conversion was due to necessity thanks to a local bike shop ruining my rear axle on the original set up, but as I said, the new single speed wheel is a lot of fun!

This dahon with the big apples is the best bike I've ever had.
