Re: Generic question
Thank you all. I stopped by the bike shop today and he didn't mention keeping my multiple gears. He only responded to my idea of abandoning the derailer system for the simpler single speed with a coaster brake. He did mention that if I did that I should also keep the hand brakes. The hub would be about $60 so with all the other stuff I would have to put about $100 into the project. So far it's just a thought. It's getting cooler here in Northern Arizona so I have until springtime to decide. I would have to think that if I could just decide on one gear I could keep the status quo and life goes on. I might be trying to complicate things by re-inventing the wheel. I will check out the links so kindly offered in the other posts and see what it leads to. Thank you again.
