    Found the perfect commuter beater!!

    Bought a 1994 Mongoose Crossway 425 for 5 bucks the other day at a yard sale. Rear wheel needs a couple of spokes and a truing along with both hubs being repacked and new shifters, tires and She's golden!

    OK...the grips are bad and not the shifters. Tires, tubes, and rear rim repair and that's it.

    So the rear wheel needs hub work, spokes and rim repair? Rehabing is admirable and all but I think you hit the trifecta of component replacement.

    Many shops--and don't hate on me for saying it, sporting goods stores--will have a replacement for 50 or so.
