    Need help identifying a fork

    bought a niner today. My first mountain bike in 15+ years. It came with this green rockshox on it. His friend built this bike and he bought it because his friend needed cash and he was trying to help him out. The guy I bought it from replaced the original stickers with old school stickers. So...

    Felt : change to freewheel hub and adding disc brakes

    yes, the Felt does have Horizontal Dropouts. I would think it would work. I just haven't been on here in so long that maybe there is a better kit to use than this? or if anyone has used this kit, what do they think about it.

    Felt : change to freewheel hub and adding disc brakes

    I have never liked coaster brakes so I'm wanting to swap to freewheel. If I do that I need to install brake(s). I think it would be cool to put a disc brake on the rear and leave it at that. I'm sure it's possible but I'm wondering what the best diy bolt on way is. I havent been in here in years...

    Felt Bicycle Pics

    It's nice to see a thread I created over 6 years ago is still going strong! I did a trade last night and picked up this Felt Little ........ I'm really digging it so far. It's pretty much exactly the way I would have built it myself. But will probably still figure out something to do to make it...

    Is stripping to metal that important?

    From what I have read on here, most of you will strip the frame down to metal before you paint it. Is this necessary? Just wondering if I clean it real good and maybe get a brillow pad or some light sand paper then paint it if that will work? I did find a guy that will strip and powder coat...

    Chucka's Electra Build

    Rooski. Couldn't get the weight of the bike. pulled my scale out and weighed myself first and it said I was 188lbs. I was happy with that number but I know I weigh about 235. So I tossed the scale in the trash. :( Sorry But I did take most of the bike apart, will need to get some more tools...

    This will be a long ongoing thread depending on how busy work keeps me and my personal life. but thought this would be a good place to post pics as I do it. Scored a Electra Suzy Q off craigslist yesterday. Looks a little weathered but in great shape. Seat and grips need replacing for sure but...

    I originally wanted to do a matte black with red rims, but I'm kinda thinking I want to be a little more original with it. I don't know. also, this probably isn't the place to ask, can the forks be shortened?
