Help with Cannondale Killer V500 bike upgrades
I'm new to the forum and I'm also new to the bicycling world. I used to do it for pleasure but now I have decided to do it for fitness and to save money on gas.
I would like some help with some upgrades on a used Cannondale bike that I just bought today. It's a 1996/97 Killer V 500. I paid $250 for it and so I thought it would be pretty reasonable for me to upgrade rather than purchasing brand new.
I would like to add some upgrades to it like front and rear suspension and possibly disc brakes if at all possible, but I don't know where to begin or what to begin with ie; brand, size, etc. I would like to do this myself if possible, or would your recommend that I just take it to a bicycle shop??
Can anyone offer any advice??
if my memory serves me right, the KillerV was a hardtail, so rear suspension cannot be added.
ok, how about front suspension?? Do you think that would be possible?? I only paid $250 for it so no huge loss if not.....
First, make sure it's the right size for you. None of your upgrades will matter if the bike doesn't fit.
