Well, my Doc told me I need to exercise more and with rotten knees running is out of the question. I used to be a big biker and would like to get back into the sport. My current bike is a 95 GT aggressor hard tail that has a broken fork I am trying to see if GT will honor the recall of the shock to date they told me it was too old and they wouldn't honor it . I called the Office of Consumer Affairs and they told me they would see if they couldn't change their mind
So here I sit w/ a broken bike that requires a new 1" threaded fork. I really do not do much mountain biking and plan on road riding mainly w/ some light to moderate trail riding thrown in. I read about cyclocross bikes and thought that would be a good route to go.
I am cannot afford to lay out the money for a new road bike, even a entry level one. I was thinking of fixing the forks and riding the GT, then buying a frame and swapping my components over. Then was hit with the possiblity of all the components not being able to swap. I know the brake levers/shifters wont, possibly the cranks, I would need new wheels, ect. So I may be waisting my time (and $$) there.
Is it possible to convert my Gt into a more road freindly bike. If so what would some of the collective's recommendations be? I am 41 and 5'7" about 256lbs.
