    Maint / Replcmnt list for '14Trek 820

    Hello All,

    Was an avid mountain biker and trailer for a good portion of my life. The last one I purchased was a new 2014 Trek 820. I wasnít doing as much deep trails with it as much as the paved trails when I purchaed it. I also preferred the heavier frame with this one as I felt it got a better work out. So maybe less mountain and more hilly road.

    The last couple of years, itís been sitting in the elements (my fault). Now that Iím getting Corona Fat and Cabin Fever, I figure I would start riding again.

    Everything seems to be in decent shape, except the front shocks are trashed, the chain and rear cogs are rusted. Was thinking of dumping some money into for replacement parts and fixing it myself. I am mechanically inclined, but am having issues confirming what parts are compatible. Had some good input to get me in the right direction from a local, unrelated forum.

    I just looking to get it back in running shape and to keep costs low.

    Hereís the bike.

    Chain Replacement:

    Cables-only:

    https://www.modernbike.com/shimano-o...able-set-black

    Also have a chain tool and freewheel remover tool in the cart.

    All in my cart with $15 discount, and free shipping, I'm at around $135.

    Is there anything else up for maintenance consideration? Or any other reasonably priced alternative considerations? Was trying to stick to same OEM brands hoping they will fit. I know the front fork is low end, but as long as it's at least similar to my old one, then it will do me fine.

    Thanks for reading.

    You'll also needs additional tools to do the install yourself. Pipecutter/file to cut down the new steerer tube (measure twice, cut once) and housing cable cutter.
