Friday, I picked up a new-to-me frameset and crankset from a co-worker. He gave me a steal of a deal. I basically paid the going price for the used crankset, and got the frameset for free.
I’m waiting on most of the parts to arrive, and then it’ll be time to see if I can put together a bike from scratch. Should be an experience!
My co-worker used to race this bike, and it is somewhat overkill for a commuter. But, I’ve quickly learned that cheap bikes don’t hold up to how I ride (particularly bottom brackets – this crankset uses a completely different style of bracket than my current bike).
