New build based on an old build. Was set up almost identical on another bike, replaced many parts with new--especially the frame...--and added the double chainring up front. Lots of range now, equivalent to running an 11-34 cassette out back. Set up for winter riding with Nokian's mid studded tires. Front double chainring serves as hi/lo gear, changes with the downtube shifter.
New parts: tires, frame, headset, bb, crank, chain tensioner, chain, saddle, rack, stem, pedals, cable and housing
Used parts: wheels, fenders, lights, seatpost, shifters, handlebars, brakes/levers
