Deconstruction #1

November 8th, 2010

The donor bike broke down into its constituent parts quite easily. Everything seems to be in reasonable shape, just in need of cleaning up and a good greasing.

The parts I’ll be using are:

  • rear wheel, suspension arm and brake
  • entire drivetrain (I’ll have to cut the bottom bracket from the frame)
  • shifters and brake levers (unless I find better ones)
  • head and steerer tube (for my under-seat steering)

The LongShot front wheel and fork will come from another scrap bike.
