converSion SeemS SucceSSful So far

Here are a few pics of the Seventies Schwinn Super Sport Single Speed. The brakes are still on there for now ‘cause I have no idea how to ride this thing. Still need to find some metal toe clips. I took her out for a short test ride wearing flip-flops. That probably wasn’t the best choice of footwear for my first-ever fixed ride, but it worked fine. You really can slow it down with the pedals pretty well. I don’t know about actually coming to a stop, but I’ll work on that.

Thanks to Harv and Sheldon for the tips…

A single speed maybe for me, but I'm too much into coasting to ride a fixie. It's an age thing, ya know.

Yeah, this might be some sort of mid-thirties crisis I’m going through here. I doubt if I’ll end up riding it great distances. I think it will be mostly for fun rides around town.
