    I would say its worth fixing, 26 lbs is light for a bike that size.

    One question. by cassette you mean the free wheel or are you talking about the hub? Where the bearings are.
    because I would rather keep the bearings and the freewheel. I just need the rim (wheel)

    How much would that cost me?

    Cassette is a type of hub, it uses a driver instead of a freewheel and is much more reliable.

    That bike is actually decent. Clean it up a bit, and it would look nice too.

    you mean like a fixed bmx that you cant cruise or are you just saying it is a better form of a freewheel kind of thing.

    If there is nothing wrong with the hub just take it to a bike shop and have them lace up a new rim for you. An Alex DM-24 24" inch rim is only about $20.00 at the shops around here and it is usually another 20 or so to have it laced up if you don't know how to do it yourself.

    Any more suggestions on a cheap but not too bad rear 24In rim?

    Well i just went to my local bike shop and they said $50 !!!!!!!!!!!!
    So i think i am not going to be able to get a new wheel for a while, but if i could do it my self it would be really good. But sadly i cannot. I would be fine with $20 but not with $50!

    LOL 50 bucks is not expensive, might as well not bother fixing the bike up if you aren't will thing to throw down some cash. What were you expecting?

    Well because i am 14 i cant really make a lot of money. So do you think i should learn and do it my self? Or is it safe to ride it ,because it has a small crack on the braking surface bit its only minimal.

    If i would have a job then i would be fine but i don't have a job.

    What about this? could i put my free wheel on it?

    I know why they bent so easily. The Weinmann 519 519 Rims
    Read these reviews! http://www.mtbr.com/cat/tires-and-wh...97_139crx.aspx

    And how do you mean it depends?
