I am not pro and have intention of being so. Just would love some advice on whether to spend the time to fix up a bike purchase or not. Thanks!!
I purchased a Nishiki Blazer mountain bike through local site for $25. I plan to use it for leisure street use only but when I was looking into it this forum kept coming up so I figure you all might be a great resource to ask.
It seems to be in decent shape. I knew I would need to replace the chain and fix up or replace the handlebars for rust but the rest of the body seems okay for my use. The gears also show some rust on the tips and some rust on axels. The shifter and breaks work but are a little rough. Like I said I'm a noob and don't know very much. Willing to put a little work in if it will be a decent bike but don't want to further sink a sunken ship.
Is this type of rust going to cause trouble? or can I remove it well enough and prevent future rust? Thanks for the help ahead of time
