Picking me up a new bike in the morning.

Trek 4300.

I know I know…..

it’s pretty weak but i don’t ride enough to justify spending anything over $500 and this one is barely over that.

It will be a nice step up from my Trek 3700 which is down and out. was gonna cost me $300 to fix all the shit that’s wrong with it which is more than i fucking paid for the thing brand new.

well at least you accept that we’ll tease you for a bit.

but yeah i’m not surprised that your old bike repair is expensive.

needs new cables all the way
new front derailer (sp?)

just a bunch of basic tune up shit that needs to be done on a old bike.

i am happy with the 4300.

didnt get to ride much yesterday as it rained all day.

today i am hitting the trails hard

cut all that off and convert to low gear fixed MB

explain! would love to fix up this frame as it was my bike through college.

There is the mad ghetto way, like my bike, which invovles just cutting everything off the frame with an angle grinder, taking off the derailleurs, shortening chain, picking a gear and spacing the rear cassete and welding the freehub so it doesn’t freewheel anymore

you could do single speed easily without much modification, just take off all the unneeded components, like brakes, derailleurs, cables, shifters and make it look clean

Do not weld the freewheel. Suicide hub can possibly fail and could seriously injure and or kill you. Run it ghetto singlespeed using the rear derailleur as a tensioner (work the cable stops so it’s stuck to one gear), and leave the chain in the middle chainring.

btw, you might want to get a longer seatpost (or just run it slightly lower) on the old bike because I see it’s just pass the minimum insertion line.

Where should I buy a back fender from? I wouldn’t mind having one as my tires will be throwing mud all over me……. for sure.

fuck yes! that was fun as fuck.

my buddy needs to get in shape though. He couldn’t keep up with me for shit.

Most bike shops and sporting goods stores that have bikes should sell clip-on fenders.

Nice, dude!

And fenders =
