46x17t surly

Back when this bike came out in 1988 it was only 21 pounds with everything on it. now that i took most of everything off, its super light for the era it came from.

Its my first fixed gear but i have kept all original components if i ever decided to convert back or resell.

The original red paint was very scratched so i decided on repainting the frame red, but in the middle changed my mind and painted it an off white to match the pearl sante cranks.

i guess its not bad for my first converson

color, gears

I would have kept the original paint, unless it was so bad it was in danger of rusting. It preserves the value better, and red+chrome looks better than white + chrome. Old bikes with poor paint look kind of cool too. Just a preference, though.
I would convert back to gears too. The frame is almost too nice to convert to single speed, and it should be really light anyway.

trust me

you never will decide to switch back.


sante head set!
