Newbie here, I'm old school mountain biker and I've just traded my hardtail for a project. It'a a 2001 Cannondale Jekyll 600, The poor thing has been ridden hard and put away wet. My job is to make it new, shiny, and happy again.
The rear Fox shock was pretty weak and the lockout wont work, But I can live with it for now. The front end is SHOT! Super fatty headshock, threads are stripped so it wont hold air and it's wired on so it will stay up. Works for riding to the grocery store but thats about it. Brake pads are worn out needs new wires, already put tires on it, (it had road bike tires on it and the front fork backwards )
I like it though, I can see the potential more than I can see the faults. I will need all the tips I can get though cause until now I've only worked on hardtails and this is a new kind of animal to me.
