so i currently have a gt 1997 ricochet with slicks on it i bought at a police auction for 175, i was wondering should i keep investing money to make it more road worthy? i'm a poor college student so i can't afford a road bike. I ride mostly road and use it as a commuter on my mountain bike but i do hit a lot of potholes and curb hop a lot.
Another thing i can do is that i recently joined a bike club on campus, and they offer plenty of bike frames that just need some tlc with many bike parts thats cheap and bike tools to use. should i just buy a bike there and try to fix it up? i've seen a specialized crossroads that seems pretty old and has cantilever brakes and maybe i could convert it for commuting.
