started a diet plan early in the spring on this 18 year old CCM.
I kept busting things and while looking for a bolt I came across
a full suspension bike at 50% off. That piece o'crap department
store bike didn't last 2 months before the crank came apart, I got
my money back and bought a Marin hardtail. As winter approaches
here in the great north I began reading about singlespeeds and decided
to convert the old CCM to a singlespeed and use it for my daily
commute. There's nothing fancy about it, the only non-original parts
are the Rhyno Light rear wheel and the Revolver hub. It is currently
geared at 48:18. Over the winter when snow and cold will have me
on an e-bike (arrrg) I hope to treat it to some paint and maybe
a few other odds. I want to keep it less than appealing to thieves
and so far it is that, ugly but I love it. The diet has me down
75 pounds and I refound a love for bikes and riding.
