I wanted to put together a bike for getting to the city or running to the store. Originally, I was going to make a SS, using some leftover parts from my college SS, but then I stumbled across this page. http://www.pedalroom.com/bike/tighty-whitey-1x8-7792 This build inspired mine, as did the realization that I'm older and much fatter and gears are a good idea. Old = Old parts that I had lying around. Used = Second hand parts that I bought online. New = New parts I bought online. The pictures show tires and a chainring that will be replaced with what's listed below.
