First SS Conversion
#1
Got a cheap GMC Denali and decided to turn it into my first SS bike to use as a commuter. Changed pretty much everything on this bike including, cranks, chainrings, cogs,seat, front and back wheel, brakes, handlebar tape. Started out as a low end 21 speed geared bike and is now a reliable safe commuter for everyday use.

Thats a very nice bike Smile! You know they have red "white" wall tires? They can be found on amazon.com
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

That's a great idea Bill. I will definitely look into those tires. Thank you. Also, what is your opinion on powder coated spoke rims? I can't decide if I should leave them be or make them black or red? Thoughts anyone?

Here they are! I am not sure what size you need but these are the ones I have for my Schwinn Traveler http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037N7TBK


Edit: Oh man sorry they are like totally red! Sad I don't know what I was thinking!

lol thats fine. I found some on ebay that are black and have red stripes along each side. All red ones might be a little much for the eyes to handle.

Yes, Bill. It is the thought that counts. Red tires... hmmm.. okay!

I missed this thread somehow, ART. Looking Good! Those red crank-arms are a perfect accent to the tape and saddle. Red sidewalls or stripes on black tires would look High Speed!.
'Edit: Oh man sorry they are like totally red!'
Bill meant "Totally Rad", though. Same thing...

And Red skewers. YES!

Can we see a drivetrain pic? Please??
