Single Speed Bike Wheels
- not to be confused with fixed gear, is form of XC mountain biking that is done using a single-speed bicycle that has only one gear (approx. 2:1 ratio) and generally fewer components. The idea is simplicity. The straight chain line provides efficient pedaling.
- While any bike that doesn't have multiple gears or speeds is technically called a "single-speed" bicycle, this term generally refers to a bike with a one-speed freewheel and coaster brakes.
- (Bike Wheel) A bicycle wheel is a wheel, most commonly a wire wheel, designed for bicycle. A pair is often called a wheelset, especially in the context of ready built "off the shelf" performance-oriented wheels.
After months of messing around trying to convert my 12 speed British Eagle (1986) racer to a single speed bike
... I finally managed is and here it the outcome.
I tried various options but in the end ditched the original wheel, added a screw on freewheel and got the new wheel dished.
A lot smoother ride with no clanky bits and maintenance hell - single speed all the way.
Thanks a lot to Charlie the Bikemonger and Richardsons for all the help.
