How to assemble or restore a bicycle – part by part

It’s been a while since I last wrote… I guess the laziness of the winter hours combined with plenty of work got the better of me.

In any case, to keep my hands busy during this winter, I decided to build a bicycle from parts. The decision came to me easily – I need a bike to ride around the town and I had some old bicycles/spare parts lying around. It will not be a serious mountain bike, but it will be built around a MTB frame (2002 Gary Fisher Marlin). I plan to assemble and restore the entire bike part by part. The first thing to do will be the frame – cleaning and re-painting – so stay tuned for a Do-It-Yourself on frame restoration (probably in a couple of weekends)!

  2. Thanks in the nice weblog. It was handy for myself. Keep spreading such ideas sometime soon as properly. This was first actually just what I needed, and I will be glad to help came below! Thanks designed for sharing that such information around

  3. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    This is the perfect website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic. You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been discussed for years. Great stuff, just excellent!
