Alright guys, so Im new to the game of mountain bikes, but not to biking,
Im 22 and have ridden my whole like, usually just casual street stuff though..
I recently parted with my baby a 01 929RR to help catch up on bills and such, so I needed a new toy to play with...
A buddy of mine just picked up two brand new specialized bikes for him and his wife..
So he was kind enough to give me his old hardrock
Like i said im very new to the game, so I didnt need the most expensive parts in the world, and ontop of that Ive made a lot of hook ups in the motorcycle community, so I really wanted to do something "different" that most of the bikes ive seen, and try to keep it budget friendly, i build this bike for less than $150 bucks
so let the fun begin
when i picked it up the bike was a complete bike, but had been sitting unused for 3 years...
so i stripped it down to this
after looking at the parts i had i was able to determine i NEEDED new pedals/cassette/derailleur/grips/chain/cables/seat
i also wanted to do something different with the colors... so i got ahold of a buddy of mine that owed me a favor for pc, had him do the frame and bars a satin black...
also got ahold of another friend who is just a nice guy, and he did my crank/kneck/and seat post a semi-gloss black pc.... (still havent gotten the parts back from him)
anway, stripped it to the frame and sent it off
2 days later, got her back
stripped the forks a few days ago, and got them prepped and sprayed last night
Ive also had all my brakes/bearing/adjusters sitting in pb blaster for the past 2 days, gonna get them out here tonight,and clean them up, and dry them off good...
here are the parts i ordered, like i said, nothing top of the line or anything, just stuff thats not from walmart, and i knew would work for now lol, in all honesty not bad for $100 bucks
and here is the bike as she sits right now...
hoping to have her 95% done by the end of the weekend (as i ordered most of my parts monday, and they should be arriving today)... so look forward to more pics...
but please let me know what you think so far..
