Want: 26" beater parts

Recommended Posts

I inherited this beat to hell Specialized. I plan to use it as a beater for neighborhood rides. Needs:

26" tires and tubes


Brake lever(s)

Everything else is salvageable for my needs, I hope. SLR brakes with cracked spring housing are probably not worth finding new parts, right?20190909_190753.thumb.jpg.da51f99510f6d842894c85e49fbcec5b.jpg

Whatcha got?

I am almost there! I cut/filed the material on the dropout away until I had enough room to tension a single speed set up. Grinding was a lot of work.

Slapped a 16 tooth as cog and wrapped a chain around the middle ring. Perfect!

I reused an old hybrid tire on the front and a slick from @AntonioGGon the back.

Brakes from @Txn will stop me when I need it. I think I just need to grab some cables and housing for the brakes now. Beater away!

Now I just have to stop myself from putting dirt drops on it an making a ridiculous monstercoss bike.
