Surely if you buy a bike and upgrade all the parts, then you have just bought it for the frame!

no different really :wink:


Touche, Sir. Touche.

I've convinced myself that this bike was in trouble, I've saved it.


The cranks go for the greater good, and the frame and fork live on!

I've done this on more than one occasion...

Just for saddle, just for the forks and more recently just for the rear wheel.

They were worth it :0

BB needs new bearings, but they're in great condition other wise

Surprisingly so!

And in reality, so has the frame/paintwork. considering most of the rest of the bits are pretty knackered (looks like it was left outside for quite a while) credit to cannondale for the quality of these bits.

The cranks are now destined for the San An, and although it's a little large, I think I may be keeping the frame too...

Not quite the same, but I once went out to buy a single part.
Came home with a complete bike worth of single parts.

Then, not even two years later.
I did it again.

Think it's gone out of hand now.

Last week brought a bike just for the chain ring bolts. Frame is S and useless to me.

This week brought another bike for the 7 speed freehub to put on last weeks wheels which
were otherwise in tip-top condition. Frame is L / XL and useless to me.

My clear out is not progressing. New year resolution will be forsale ads here.

Not sure if it counts, as technically wheels are two parts, but I did buy a whole bike just for the wheels. They were spins though.

Awesomes.

I've got a set also and your right its like a Galting gun when you spin the rear


Damn straight! Love it. I expected the wheels to go straight into the loft, now I want to find a use for them!!


Pissed off so many riders they let me pass during races just to get away from my freewheeling sounds.... :-)
