I found this Sears free spirit with a 700 C hybrid wheel, a 9 speed cassette, and a 9 speed mountain bike derailleur. The handlebars are actually flipped upside down as well.
This is a drop bar bike that originally had 10 speeds. I'll get more pictures this Sunday of it in day time.

Believe it or not, but I do have customers who have tires in that condition, and when I tell them, that their tire is in bad need of change they just ask me 'Why? There is still tread on it...":crazy:
Kind of makes you wonder what condition their car is in, if they have one.

Tried to translate SRAM into Polish, no luck.
Then imagine this. You chill on the toilet, and your mobile rings. You answer.

- High, watcha' doin'?
- (This is the moment when you angerly reply using that brand name, and finish the sentence with the polish multitool word - k...a, So it's "SRAM, k..a!") :21:

As for the bike, is SRAM tape compatible with Shimano shifters?
I think not - all that work - for nothing... :giggle:

Customer: brings bike in and says "My brakes are feeling weird".

Mechanic: "What happened".

Customer: "A guy on the East side fixes my bike for free".

Mechanic: "You get what you pay for"
