What would YOU do?
I'm moving to a new city this fall and I'm taking at least one bike with me. I have a mid/late 90s specialized stumpjumper comp that, while I can ride it, is not set up for commuting. Don't get me wrong, it's a great mountain bike, but it's too small for me on the road, doesn't have eyelets for fenders or racks (though that hasn't stopped me from using p-clips), etc.
Enough of what it doesn't have... here's what it does have: nice components. Nice brakes, nice levers, nice derailleurs, nice cranks - the whole shebang. I know that if I leave it here, it will just rot in the old man's garage, which would be a shame, so I'm weighing my options (feel free to add to them):
- Let bike rot in old man's garage
- Buy a new frame/wheelset and swap those components over
- Sell bike for not a whole lotta money
- Suck it up, junior
