Me and my Dad found this bike real cheap, as a way to test the waters of road biking. I soon decided that it would make a better single speed, because the Shimano Eagle II gear set was so heavy, and I was always in 5th gear anyway. It was soon converted, but that left me with a 39/16 gearing, and an ugly Shimano FF crank. I wanted to change, but it wasn't worth it to buy a conversion kit and a new 3 piece crankset. We were pretty frustrated at that point, until my Dad put on the BMX one piece, which gave me a much better gear, and it looked a lot better than the Shimano FF pizza pan.
I put some stickers on to cover the paint chips, cut and re-taped the bars and I like the appearance of the bike.
This bike is a lot of fun, with the mix of weird parts. It is at least a little bit lighter too.
