rmfnla I could agree with you, however I don't have alot of money to replace these things, I was thinking about fabricating some reinforcement for my pedals but not much point in that if I can't figure out how to put the things back together
the bike itself isn't really amazing but its not slow either. paid $12 for it I will admit, it weighs 30-40lbs I'm guessing, 18 speed, shimano sis shifters, shimano v brakes. It shifts gears about as well as a ferrari enzo when you tune it just right, the bad thing is it tends to retune itself to not do so well. I should prolly get some new cables for the shifters and invest in a better seat and pedals. Not to mention my wheels are badly bent from the previous owners abuse of it. Worth replacing things? I don't know. Worth a bit of my free time rebuilding? I believe so. Worth using? heck yeah.
peripatetic I'll get some pics tommorow or something
