Hello I'm from England

I'm going through a cycling renaissance having been a keen runner for the last few years.

I apologise in advance but I really want to get into single speed cycling though I'm quite a novice. I've just spent the last few months buying bits for a single speed project only to find that my old frame has a serious crack.

I just bought a new frame (used) by the looks of it it takes Q/R wheels; the wheels I've just accumulated over winter are nutted wheels.

Any ideas what i can do?

Cheers, welcome to Bike Forums, and I don't think frames are specifically made for either type (QR/bolt). I don't see why it shouldn't work. But I don't know if one is more preferrable than the other with a single speed setup.

[edit] I see you already got the answer in Bike Mechanics. Carry on... [/edit]
