Check out a decent sized thrift store. You may be surprised at what they have to offer. Just make sure nothing is rusted. Frames can always be painted. Tires/tubes I'd think would be a no brainer. Best of luck.

I'm very close to changing my goals this year and actually getting both a hard tail and a 26 incher. This is due to the 29ers maybe having a looser tail-end. I ride 75% street hills all the time and am finding a hardtail is better for climbing street hills. I still can't get my head around a 29er even though Scott and many other companies are ending production of 26 inch wheel bikes for 2013.

My current ride...

 

 

One of these days I'd like to build a Niner Air 9 with a rigid fork for the paved trails.

Seeing the top of the chain at that much of a slant, freaks my eyes out.. Ground clearance looks outstanding though with the crank positioned up so high. :)

post #2285 of 3525

What freaks my eyes out is how clean the chain is! It's as if it was never used. Is the bike brand new?

 

The chain on my bike is now so brown, it glows. If I stop using my bike for a week, the chain becomes a stick of rust. I have to shower it in Release All just to free it. Poor thing. And it's barely two years old. I never had this problem with older chains. Probably because with time, they developed a thick layer of grease that protected them trough winter.

 

Pictures of my last ride:

 

This is a golf course, sometimes.

 

Is this not the most beautiful bike path ever?

 

Like, really?

 

On the first picture, you can see ski tracks. It's a 5km closed circuit that goes around the golf course. Right beside it is a track made by people walking it in snowshoes. This track is about 40cm wide. The days before were warm and wet the snow. This day was colder, and the snow solidified so hard I could ride inside the snowshoe tracks without issues. The best part was going down a steep slope inside this narrow track. Great fun. =)
