Bought a Fisher Utopia for cheap
125 bucks bought me a blue Utopia with Deore Components, xt derailer, Mechanical Disc Brakes, but no back wheel. The guy that had the bike had the rear rotor, hardware for the rotor, and the tire but no wheel. Said his wife drove over the bike in the garage and since he rarely rode it anyways, he wanted it gone. His asking price was higher, but I mentioned that the bike looked pretty beat up he told me he would take 125 so I spilled the 20s before he changed his mind and I bolted.
Anyways, should I try and find the original hub / wheel and chain ring or should I look for a different wheel set, or just a different rear wheel? Also, any suggestions on gearing? This is my first mtn bike.
