after searching craiglist about everyday and learning whats out there and also not wanting to spend a whole lotta money, I ran across a Trek 810 for 50 bucks. The guy said after just posting the ad he was bombarded with people wanting it, and i believed it for that price and the way it looked in the ad. I told him SOLD. So i am picking it up after only seeing the picture. Looked okay---I hope fingers crossed but for 50 bucks what the hell
my wife and I have decided we want to do some light mountain biking as a form of cross training exercise on days of from running, So i may let this be her bike. She wanted a "dark blue" bike anyway.
So, Ive read that this bike has a decent frame but the components suck, Im wonder what I could do to make this bike into a fairly decent rig and stay in a decent budget also.
somebody stated new fork? anythoughts. Its an 18" and has ugly red grips? I think the first thing is better tires, pedals ? I would like to find good parts that are in abundance so i can get them cheap also.
Any ideas ?
