I recently got my son an entry level bike (Fit Inman 1B) and have started riding 20" again. It has become painfully clear that my old hoss needs some serious TLC. Well, actually I need to just get a new bike. This thing should have been put out to pasture a decade ago. But it is 2013, and I have a haggard ride and not much money, so a low budget refresh is in order. I plan to ditch some of the silly obsolete features and make a slightly more capable machine. He she is: Ahh, the Dia-Tech Flexie. I don't think I ever had this thing installed correctly. Primo Pervert. I think the Odyssey M2 lever made this obsolete. Primo Trucker Grips (Chad DeGroot?) with the flanges cut off. Volume bar ends. God these were a pain to remove. I don't remember being such a Primo fan, but the parts don't lie. The Snafu tires are warped and lumpy, and the brake pads/cables are done. I took the frame down to my LBS, (Fullerton Bicycle) and they pulled the headset cups to get the Oryg piece off. They reinstalled the cups so the fork will be going back on soon. I can't seem to find a better sprocket/spider that is economical, so the Kink might stay on there. More pics to come as I put it back together. Any suggestions other than the obvious solution of putting the whole thing in the dumpster and saving my pennies for a new ride?
