    100$ 1x budget build

    First, let me explain. I had purchased this bike for 20$ off of a guy on Craigslist. (Really good deal). But the bb was shot, the chanrings looked like shark teeth and much, much more. So I decided to set a challenge for myself. Build this bike for under 100$ and make it 1x (because why not) so I could bike in road and some light xc. So this is the result.
    Price check:
    shimano un55--22$
    Parktool bb tool--11$
    Purchase of the bike--20$
    Crankset + chainring--30$
    Crank puller-------------- 13$
    Chain breaker--------- 3.99$
    Total: 99.99$

    No new cassette? No new chain? If you don't replace them given the condition up front, you'll be in need of a new chainring again soon. Otherwise, good job.

    I stole a chain off my other bike.
    I checked the cassette, it's just fine, no skipping of any sorts. Which really surprised me.
