Mtb Conversion! (photo)
I finally built a 26" wheel tourer using old but in fairly new condition Mtb parts I yanked off of my wife's 10 yr old bike. It's a 7 speed mix of LX & XT components. I found a NOS steel Mtb frame on Ebay to put this thing all together. Bars, saddle, lever, etc....were parts just laying around in my garage. I am still deciding whether to go with panniers or pull a BOB. Low gear combo is a decent 26/32 but I don't have any top end at only 46/14. Cassette is a 14-32, 7-spd. Any suggestions on increasing my top end? Anyway, here's a photo of my new ride....
