This morning in a flash of inspiration I created this..
I converted my my very first mountain bike, the Kona Lava Dome, that had already been previously converted to a hybrid bike, into a fixed/free wheel single speed bike. Just right for scooting around town on the odd errand or just for fun. I simply have to turn the back wheel around to swap from fixed to free wheel.
It cost me nothing to do, I just used up some more of the surplus bike bits from my ‘Aladdin’s Cave’.. (Garage). But now of course I have some more surplus parts. So now I think I have finished with all my bike reconfigurations, I really do have just about every option covered now I think. But what do with parts I have left now? I suppose a cyclo cross bike could be an option but unfortunately I don’t have a spare frame though..
Here are a two more photos I took on my test ride around Emberton Park just before lunch. It seemed a very nimble little steed and the gearing seems just about right.
