    Cheap update

    Hey fellow Mojo-ites:

    A friend of mine bought a nice new Specialized M2 w/ SID front fork, which he likes very much. However, he still has his old bike, an old Diamond Back w/ a threaded headset and rigid fork. He would like to fix this up to a front suspension bike as easy and cheaply as possible so that he can loan it out to people who are thinking of getting into the sport before they drop $500 or more on a decent bike. Anyway, what I feel he needs is a fork, stem, V-brake and lever contributed. We are going to buy a new headset, and replace the middle chain ring of the cranks, and I think that will be a good start. If anyone has some extra parts laying around they don't need, or can think of another part I am missing, please let me know. Thanks all.

    Some are wise. Some are otherwise.
