Advice on converting or updating my old bike

Alright, here is my dilemma

I have a Cannondale R700, my daily ride and an old Schwinn LeTour, I got spoiled by the new components and was planning to update my Schwinn. So I got pretty much everything in 10 speed except the shifters...but then I came across to fixed gear/single speed, I haven't ridden any of them and is very eager to try...But the thing is I live in dorm and can't afford storing 3 bikes in my room...What do you think I should do?

There have been a couple recent posts talking about the FG/SS. Consider the riding you are going to do, your fitness level, and terrian.

An old Schwinn Le Tour probably isn't worth upgrading but might be worth converting to SS/FG. You already have a nice road bike so whay not give it a shot?
