I have an old mountain bike I am converting to road/fun use.
Need a new chain, so I have questions on any upgrades I need. I think I need new chain rings, but the rear looks OK.
Also the bearins feel terrible on the bottom bracket but I am hoping I can regrease and changes the ball bearings and make them much better.
Can you guys check out my pics and tell me what:
1. You would do to bring it up to great mechanical shape for cheap (which parts to replace)
2. Is my frame and rear hub still "modern" or am i severely limited (for instance can I just buy a new bottom bracket.
I already know about 7 speed not working with 9 speed stuff and frankly even if I only save a little I would just stick to 7 speed.
