    That makes me wish I had documented my single-speed conversion a couple weeks ago.

    There are places where freecycle isn’t run like some kind of hoarder’s personal fiefdom?

    I am going to put up my conversion soon, I finished it over a year ago but i documented the process then, it’s a 73 raleigh international, and i went fixie with it, it came out intense

    Thanks for the link – I only added the pictures to the pool yesterday.

    I’m not quite finished yet and will add more pictures as I go along but it’s ridable now so I thought they were worth sharing.

    I’m writing up the conversion at my blog ( but the writeup is a little behind at the moment but will be updated soon.
