    help a n00b convert for Cool

    So there is this reported to be brutal mtb race in Cool, Ca. snow, ice river crossing, sand, llama's, everything. The kind where you have to rebuild your drivetrain when done.

    Singlespeed is the key, no shifty thingies to get messed up. So I have the 89' Bianchi mtb. looks like hell, but runs great. I was thinking of converting it to SS for this race and spare my Santacruz the hell of Cool.

    the Question: any help or hints or converting it to SS on the cheap.

    Even though I am new to racing, I have the getting lapped part down pat
    That's too true for me, did a 24 hr a few years back and was lapped so many times(by the same person)!
    Good luck in the race, sounds like a ton of fun!

    Enjoy the race. I did it on my SS last year (can't do make it this year). Hard as hell (to me) but I'd do it again if I could.
    But I nailed that DFL spot in the class!
    Don't harsh my mello
