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)!
