on sunday, i finally had time to work on the race bike that i pulled out of the trash earlier this year. i took off all parts that i don’t want to use anymore, for example the brakes, the rest of the old bell, the old lighting or the lock. i also mounted the bars properly.
now i need to order some new parts. the biggest issue is exchanging the sprocket. the bike now has 2 sprockets in front and 5 in the back.
i plan to change this to one smaller sprocket in the front.
i don’t know yet if this will work out or not, since i have never worked on a bike with gears.
