fugi allegro: how much is worth putting into it
left it with friends... you know the story.
anyways, at what level should i stop putting money into it and just purchase a used, working condition roadbike?
-gear cable snapped, chain needs replacing, everything needs tightening, just replaced a spoke and i noticed that the wheels need proper truing, break cables frayed and need to be replaced asap, sleeves for gears and brakes needed, paint job on the bike is poor (but it doesn't affect my riding--it just brings the value down i suppose), brakes on handle bars hanging,
anyways, it's my first time having to fix a bike this much, and i'm not in the know so i'm here. took it to a bike store for appraisal, and i'd like to learn how to do the work myself which would take awhilel being novice, but i want to ride my bike NOW that it's sunny out in WA.
i guess my question is: how much paying to fix is over the value of a fixed up fugi allegro with unpristine paint?
