I'm getting a mid 90's steel MTB and going to convert it to a knock around/expedition bike. This is more aimed at me learning to work on my bikes than anything else, but I still want a decent bike to beat around on.
So, I need advice on what parts to use and what ones to avoid as far as:
Derails. front and rear
Cranks and chainrings
Big question: How hard is it to convert an older MTB to Disc brakes?
I've got Bicyclings Maintenance Book, but I am very mechanically inclined.
