    Finally, bike porn

    Well after last fall I decided to rebuild my old outlook mtb. It was white. I stripped it, primed and repainted it flat black. I bought all used components from ebay or recycled cycles in seattle. The only new parts are the bb, fork, freewheel, and brakes, the ders are used shimano xt, I changed the freewheel from a 6 to an 8, and finally its tuned up and ready for its first test.

    Looks good though, and I hope it rides as nice as it looks!

    Actually, I changed a couple of things since the photo was taken, the rear light is now off the back of the rack, and I moved the handlebars around a bit.....

    Very nice. I'm not sure this qualifies as bike porn, but on my Trek Navigator 3.0, I've had the handlebars raised all the way up, had the saddle replaced with a wider one, added clipless pedals, and replaced the suspension seatpost with a straight post. I've basically de-comforted a comfort bike. I'm debating replacing the suspension fork with a suspensionless one, but I can't see spending 200-300 dollars rebuilding a 500 dollar bike.
