    Granddaughter's first MTB

    This is my granddaughter's first MTB and bike with gears.
    She helped disassemble and label everything.
    We stripped it and painted it over the weekend.
    Changing from a worn out grip shift ta a trigger shift.
    It's a 24" Motobecane that I found on Craigslist for $40.
    Replacing cables, brakes, grips, tubes and tires.
    She is excited and I hope to have it completed this weekend.
    If I can adjust the derailleur right.

    I may do that. So far so good though.
    I have to pick up some brake cables and set them up and do some fine tuning of the derailleur.

    That is freakin awesome, dude. I can't wait till my granddaughter is old enough to give mountain biking a try with me.
