    First SS experience on newly converted vintage steel MTB

    I had a blast riding this week-end project bike today. Apart from a couple things, everything is stock and rebuilt. Gearing is 38,17, a bit too low for the road but plenty a challenge on the trail. WIll be my commuter this summer.

    I like old MTB conversions. I mean, where else can you find big boner stems like that?
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Drop bar mtb conversions....
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Hey Phiu-x, looks sweet man! I recently got a new bike so I want to convert the 3 by 8 setup to a SS on the old bike. I am wondering where you got the parts and how the conversion process went. I see the conversion kit on nashbar for 20 bucks and that seems like a great deal for everything. My budget is 50 bucks so I want to see what I can get out of it. I am also wondering how hard of a gear ratio to get. I dont really understand how the gear ratio stuff works so feel free to fill me in. Thanks!
