I have currently, an eye-watering nine bikes in project status. Some to keep, some to sell - none at 100%. Here they are in order of done-ness;
- Rocky Mountain Cardiac
- Land Gear
- Kona Fire Mountain
- Jamis Diablo
- Kuwahara M4.5 Savage
- Kuwahara Instinct
- Rocky Mountain Summit Max
- Kona Explosif
- Santa Cruz Heckler
There's also the Santa Cruz Tazmon, which I'm not counting because it's stripped to the frame, and ready to sell, but I don't have a box to put it in.
The Cardiac needs a tube, and then it's good to go. As long as I'm certain I want to sell it. I'm about 90% sure.
The Land Gear somehow ended up having an 8 speed cassette and 7 speed shifters. Not sure if I was just really tired that day, or maybe I was going to solve this later and I forgot, but that needs to be fixed obviously. Also I think I can find V-brakes other than those XT units.
The Fire Mountain is going to a friend of mine, but needs new cranks first. These ones were part of a recall, plus I can do better with other parts.
The Kuwaharas need various things. Wheels and bars and shifters and just all kinds of things. I thought it was a good omen when I happened to have a fork that fit one of them, but then they both stalled out after that.
Same for the Diablo - it just needs weird stuff. Pretty sure it's got a 126mm spaced rear end, and I'm just not interested in trying to figure that out.
The Explosif I can deal with. The fork has damaged brake mounts, so I need a new 27.5 fork - that shouldn't be a problem. And it needs a front brake caliper, but I'm pretty sure any Shimano caliper with a banjo fitting will work.
So, lots of work to update, stay tuned.
