    New here, with a project.

    Last night i picked up a 23.5" Giant Rincon off of craigslist for $25. The problem i have is that everything on it has been COMPLETELY disassembled. so i have a frame, all the big parts (seat/rims/bar/ect) and then i have a bag of parts that i'm not too sure how to put together. Is there anyone here that could possibly help with this? i have some pics that i'll put up shortly.


    Also, i was just offered a Schwinn 754 for $25. seems like a decent deal. Is the Schwinn worth having?

    How would you describe your mechanical savvy? If you're a good wrench, you can do everything but the wheel build.

    i'm a former aviation mechanic. i have the skills, just not the know-how.

    the wheels are intact (as in have the bearings and stuff installed). just needs new tires/tubes. i'll need the most help with the shifter assembly. They are grip shifters and i have no idea how they work.

    anyone know about that schwinn road bike? for $25 i think i'll pick it up.

    The Bicycle Mechanics forum can help with specific questions. Pictures usually help.
