So I found this bike in hard rubbish about two weeks ago & have finally gotten around to getting started on it. The bike started out as a 9 speed or so? Chain hanging off, worn out red grips, front brake disconnected, flat tires & so on.. Since then I've managed to take off all the front brake components, remove the gearing mechanism, back wheel made up for single speed & started removing the c**ppy adhesive from the bars.
My future plans for it are a Matador Red respray, white grips & thats pretty much it. Although because it has vertical dropouts I need to buy a suitable chain tensioner, I've done the research & the DMR STS SS Chain Tensioner seems to be my best bet at making this work.
I dont have a whole lot of knowledge as to how I should go about doing certain things to this bike so I'll be asking a fair few questions, if y'all could help me out that would be greatly appreciated!
Also I can only assume these are Carbon forks? If so is there a special way I should go about cleaning them up and spraying them? Thanks.
