Thought I'd register after lurking around these parts for a bit...
Just bought a new bike + parts today on Amazon. Totally excited.
This bike plus upgraded tires, pedals, saddle, a brake levers set, and some bar tape. (All for under $350 shipped!) I used to own a Trek 7.3 FX but have decided to give single speed a go.
Complete newbie here, however. Never built a bike before but would love to finally understand the mechanics and get my hands dirty!
I live right by the lake so it'll be fun to ride the trails... any Chicagoans out there?!
