well covered a total of 6 miles today on daily commute all ok apart from some minor adjustments .

i know other people dont agree with single speed conversions , but when you do a flat ride day in day out , its a lot easier without having to change gears all the time .
and i am sorry to admit it these old Peugoet's lend them selves well as toughly built and normally stand up to all weather well .

I'm really glad that your making use of the peugeot. When i converted it to single speed (the only way to cycle) it really turned my cycling round and got me fit again. As for all weather have a look at this (in its earlier geared incarnation)...
