Started to have a look at this Marin Wolf Ridge I picked up last night, that I got off Gumtree courtesy of the link big eck posted.
Now, going by the frame number it is a '99 but Bikepedia doesn't show a Wolf Ridge of that shape at all for '99. There is a 2000, but it's the later shape frame. Also going by the number it's a Pine Mountain, doesn't mention the Wolf Ridge in the list.
It's for my daughter so the spring is a bit hard as it's a 550, will try to get an air shock rather than another spring but might have to settle for a softer spring. Got a new mech hanger coming but if somebody has one going spare I might take it aff yer hands.
So will have to get a set of Hopes working and build a Hope disc rear wheel. Think it will start off with V's.
If anyone has a cheapo 34.9/35mm bottom pull front mech let me know, please.
Need to get the bearings out of headset cups to clean and lube them, do I just bash them gently with tool number 1 and screw-driver?
Will probably change the headset then deal with the bearings in this one later.
