This is actually my Boss/Friends bike. He started riding when he hired me last year. We have struggled to keep this bike rideable. I have used every spare part in my parts bin, every trick in the trade. It started as a bike path bike. After a few months he got new tires, and I put an old (but newer than this bike) crank on it. Then new stem, new seat, pedals, all sorts of random odds and ends to keep him riding. I obviously wanted to keep him riding because he was who I usually rode with. He finally Upgraded and bought a Gary Fisher Hifi Deluxe. It's awesome I'll show you guys later. But NOW we are converting this frame into a Hybrid bike he can ride with his kids on the local rail-trails with his kids. So here it is now after a few upgrades/changes. Still lots to be done and most likely replaced. But the wheels were a big purchase in the last few days.
