Ok.. getting this back to the top. I got the lock off. It was too rusted for the BIC pen but an angle grinder did wonders and I got a new tool . So that was fun. Anyways I was going to remove the tires and tubes and replace with more of a street tire. After I clean up the wheels of course.

I'm also wanting to clean up the cassette (I think that's what it's called). can I take it off and then soak it in something to remove the rust? I've been reading about cassette removal and I think I'm going to need some tools but that's ok.

I was also going to replace the brake pads and replace the rusty brake cables and shifter cables. It didn't shift correctly at all. Also going to order a new chain

What else am I missing? Could I turn this into a 29er and have a beefed up commuter?? Would that be overkill and cause me to replace everything?
