    Skinny Tire Cruiser. This ain't the Overweight Wannabe Roadie Build Off. :p I was thinking along the lines of you can have gears, or you can have a drop bar, but you can't have both. (I won't have either) :|

    Well alright then. This build off is for real, and I think this is the build thread.

    Here's a 53 CWC, new was a Roadmaster or a Western Flyer. After stripping it down, I'll be adding skinny tires, coaster brake, AND gears all at the same time. Different wheels of course. It should top out at about 30mph. Girlie approves.

    I am ok with anything under 2 inch myself. I know that those 26x2 thick slick tires sure look good!

    I have a set of Panaracer High Road V City Tires coming from Nashbar, 26 x 1.50 and pretty inexpensive.

    I think we should be doing individual threads, and use this post for general discussion and a poll at the end. :|

    The other build offs have separate threads, but I don't know how that's set up. Whoever got this thing going might know.

    I will get a standard build thread up in the morning. I do suppose it would make things much easier to follow. We can just check in here for the heckles, kudos and general build banter

    Great. Yeah I set it up but I'm not sure how it's done. Can you throw a link on here when it is done?
