Can I Use My Road Bike's Cassette as a Fixed Gear (Crazy, Right?)
So, I've been cycling around the world for the past 4 years (overexaggeration, I stop places and live for a while) and I just landed in China and found the frame bent to a perpendicular angle.
Anyway, the derailleur is bent and ruined and I'm in a location where there are no bike repair shops or supplies to make the fix.
What I'm thinking is to remove a few links from my chain and choose one of the sprockets on the cassette to make it a fixed gear.
Is this feasible?
I'll be testing this in a couple days, but I'd love to hear what you guys think, maybe a few words of warning, or encouragement that this is actually possible (or has been done before).
Questa è una buona domanda?
