Hello from Miami

Hey. I'm Bruno. I'm 21 and like philosophy, parkour, poker, frugality, cooking, the beach, and of course riding. I'm a barista at Starbucks.

I commute 10 miles RT almost daily on my 2006 Giant Yukon. Recently I had my eyes on a Ross Eurotour on Craigslist and my girlfriend bought it for me before I researched it any further. I originally wanted to convert it into a fixie, but I'm not absolutely sure of that after riding it and researching its quality here.

Ole!

Hi Bruno! I'm glad to hear that you are going to think over that fixie conversion . The C & Vers don't go into seizures just because someone wants to make a fixie out of a nice old bike, but we really hate to see bits and pieces ground off for that 'clean' look. If you do go with a fixie, just save all the pieces you take off, and don't mess with any braze ons. You may eventually return the Eurotour to a geared bike, and then you'd be kicking yourself .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
