Just got the bike today, and fixed it up as well as i could in a very short amount of time. everything works except the rear derailleur. The frame is aluminum and is lighter than my old chromo road bike.
like i said the rear derailleur doesn't work. as you can see in the pics the cable is frayed and such, so i need to get a new cable i guess. im still poor at fixed the derailleurs though, and im not sure what to do with it, or how to go about installing a new cable, it will be a learning experience.
anything else you can tell me would be kool. here are the pics, im not super good at pic taking so if there is another angle, side, or whatever that would be usefull feel free to suggest.
when i got the bike the little ring that keeps the seat post in was popped off. the front break was poorly adjusted and missing a pad. also i dont know how to post pics within the text box so they are as thumbnail attachments.
