More Info:
I really wanted to not only make this bike a "do it all", comfortable to ride bomber, but also spread my home mechanic skills quite a bit. So I rebuilt or replaced everything possible on this bike whether it needed it or not. Once the frame was stripped, I sealed all tube openings with FlexSeal tape and filled the inside of the tubes to soak overnight with EvapoRust (can't hurt right?) and then FluidFilm rust prevention. Then converted to threadless with hardware store fittings instead of expensive pressing tools, replaced the loose ball bottom bracket with a sealed unit, and rebuilt the hubs on the craigslist wheels. I think the only original part I kept is the cranks. My plan was all silver components to go with the fork, but everything I bought new ended up being available in black so oh well!
