Hello everyone, I'm looking for some information and advice on a bike i picked up.
I brought a Nishiki Bravo mountain bike home the other week. It is a high tensile frame, decent welds. It's red and silver. The rear drops look forged, not stamped, with a deraileur hanger. Mismatched wheels. Shimano SIS deraileurs, rear has a claw despite the build in hanger, gripshifts. SR Suntour triple crank, seven speed megarange freewheel. Zoom suspension fork with a threaded steam.
Does anyone know where it falls into the Nishiki timeline, and possibly how old it might be? Would this be worth modifying for a fun around town bike (slick tires, northroad style bars, suspension post)? Is this a low end, LBS bike, or an x-mart special?
Any info and advice would be much appreciated. Also, let me know if I should have posted this in a different forum, I just tend to spend the most time in C&V.
