    transformed from commuter to trail rider. removed the fenders and added knobby 38c tires, spd pedals, and an inline brake lever for the front.

    This is my new beater bike project.

    This is how it was when I picked it up. Its just one of those generic Kent Genesis bikes they theme up and give away for promos, this one happened to be for UV Vodka.


    Replaced the crank with a Shimano unit from the 90s (got it cheap!), just one arm from the old set weighs as much as the entire new one with chainring. I got new brake pads, new brake cable and lever. Chopped and flipped the bars until I can get a proper setup there.


    I'ts a project in progress. I'm slowly gathering parts for this thing. I gotta say though, while the parts that came on it are less than stellar, the frame is BEEFY.
    Plans for it include stripping off the goofy paint and giving it a nice paint job, getting a halfway decent wheelset for it, putting my miyata crmo track fork on it (once it comes in the mail from the other coast) and getting some decent riser bars, stem, seat post, and saddle for it. If I strip it and paint it, I may as well replace the BB and headset too, But I'm not so sure what to do about those. I'll also be picking up a set of pedals and straps, I dont want to have to deal with hauling a 2nd set of shoes to work with me everyday.

    I currently ride this thing to and from work every day, and its a lot of fun. The tires are terrible though and feel like you're riding through mud, but that will be sorted out with a new wheelset when the time comes.

    The paint isn't all that bad, I'd move it to last on the list of stuff. Level out your bars and get rid of the nerd ring on the chainring. Get a nice saddle next. You are on the right track.

    Having the bars at that angle keeps my wrists straight, I have an old injury that gets aggravated otherwise. And the paint is an afternoon's work. Like I said, once I get some more parts that necessitate a major disassembly of the bike, I'll do the paint.

    As for the nerd-ring... Yeah it looks even more weird without it. That particular crankset relies on it. And it keeps my pants out of the chain. (Remember, I ride this to work, not allowed to wear shorts where I work.)

    Also I look like a bear riding this thing. The bike is pretty well sized for me, but I'm also still a pretty burly dude.

    No idea, but I'm trying to find a 1" quill stem with a 31.8mm bar clamp.

    There is apparently this ugly ass thing. As far as I know your only other options are a) custom, or b) adapter + threadless stem.

    You're not the only one. LOOK makes the ergostem. Equally as weird for more than quadruple the price.
