I would like to learn some mechanical abilities that involve more than changing a tire. My plan is to strip an old mtn bike I've had sitting around and rebuild it. I'm thinking i would rather learn on that than screw someithing up on the only road bike i have
I'd like to try and salvage as many part as I can but most of them are in pretty rough shape.
At this point I'm not all that concerned with getting high end components. As long as everything comes together, I'll just be using it for casual riding and possibly commuting when the day comes that I dont live 50 miles from work.
Any suggestions on good place to find cheap parts while I learn? Or any other advice would be nice as well.
