Hey all, a couple general questions about fixing up a 24" bike for my son. I bought a Trek MT 220 off Craigslist for very cheap, because it needs some work. I'm not trying to build a racer here just a reliable bike. It needs to last 3-4 years - I have two boys and it'll be handed down to the younger boy later on.
So, I'm wondering if the derailleur and drive from 26" equipment will fit on the 24" or do I need to be looking for different sized parts.
Just to begin I'll be looking a new shifters, cables, tubes, brake pads and pedals. The cranks and tires look fine. I have not looked inside the crankset or BB yet, if that ends up being replaced is that the standard 26" equipment too? Recommendations for specific parts would be great!
Can't wait to get him on the trail on the new bike! They'll have matching Trek's for a couple years. The old MT-60 is going strong.
