Rower

I have a Concept 2 Model D and have had it for 12 years or so. I have used it on average 2 times a week during that time. It still runs like it was new.

old bike rebuild.

I see that there are plenty of steel frame bicycles on Craigslist under $100. All of them have down tube shifters. How much trouble would it be to strip the bike down and then add a Shimano...
