About a week ago, one of our fans decided to take a plunge and convert her old LeMond Buenes Aires bike to a single speed. Since she haven’t been riding in a while, she decided to wait on a fixed gear setup and to start with single speed… just to be safe.
We decided to take her bike to 66Fixed bike shop and after talking to Michael about options, we decided to keep it simple. Michael did a nice job doing a quick single speed conversion on the rear wheel and the crankset. To add a little bit of style to her bike, she chose some yellow and red tires and a pair of nice black pedals… hey, nothing like pimping out your first fixie/single speed bike.
Here are some pics we’ve taken of her “new” Lemond bike on a test ride around downtown Saint Petersburg Florida.
