Project "Freespirit" first build
Name is Paul. Live in Champaign-Urbana Il. This is my first build. Well third build, this is the first finished and reliably ridden build. The first bike was a Genesis 29 mountain bike, awesome bike but, terrible bike for a first build. Second bike was a Schwinn Southport. What a piece, lasted one and a half trips roughly 16 miles before the frame broke.
Now to the Freespirit. I mechanically rebuilt it, replaced the cottered crank with a square-tapered crank to take care of the offset problem with the original crank. Put a folding basket, Schwinn computer(basic), and mounted a U-lock earlier today.
It is a fun ride and have learned quite a bit about basic bicycle maintence .
