Is this bike worth the effort?
I recently bought a (pretty old I think) used Norco brand mountain bike. It seems sturdy, isn't rusted or anything, and rides pretty well, but the more I use it the more I want to invest time and money into fixing it up--it could use some new chainrings, etc.
My question is whether the frame is decent enough to warrant the effort, or if I am better off finding a newer/different frame and/or bike to invest in.
A picture of the bike can be found at http://yfrog.com/16b46rj
. I can't read the original bike model. The most individual characteristic seems to be the placement of the rear break (it is down near the chains rather than near the seat post where breaks most often are). I don't know if anyone will recognize it.
Thanks for your help!
