Deconstruction #2

November 19th, 2010

A moderate amount of cutting and grinding later, and here are some parts for reuse:

Clockwise from left:

  1. front forks with head tube
  2. rear suspension arm
  3. bottom bracket with derailleur mount tube
  4. head and steerer tube for under seat steering.

The suspension arm includes the pivot tube surgically extracted from the old frame, and that head tube will be cut down significantly as the USS doesn’t need the heft.

I’ll also reuse most of the components from the donor bike, including the brakes, cranks, derailleurs, levers and shifters. They are all serviceable though not high-end. Once I have a working bike it’ll be trivial to upgrade them if I’m so inclined.
