Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Conversion

Just checking that this bike is capable of being converted into a fixed gear or if it's worth doing. Pros and cons.

Here's pics of the bike:

Everything about that bike is a con as a candidate for a fixed fixed/single speed conversion.

If what your sig says is true, I think you should look elsewhere.

Could be fun SS conversion but not as fun fixed gear conversion.
