I have an old hardtail that i bought in april, 2010. Its with 26 inch wheels and it has reach a point where i dont want to upgrade it anymore. Dont really feel that it would be worth it to buy parts for it.
I have been using it as a commute bike for the past year but annoying sounds are coming from the drive train making it impossible to ride like that anymore. I have tried fixing things with it but some parts are just getting really bad.
My idea is to use this as a bike for more crazy riding, where i dont really have to care what happens to the bike. I dont have to be careful with it even though i will try to do regular maintenance on it. It would be nice if it lasted a while longer giving me a bike for other types of riding.
I will take a test ride soon to see what can be done.
