Started and almost finished a single speed mountainbike today according to the wishes of one single person… . And here’s the result:

The frame has been roughened with sandpaper and oversprayed with black varnish (silk finish for grounding). Today the black automotive shiny varnish was sprayed on some of the parts. If this job is finished it’s gonna look goooood.

When I tried to take off the crank protection to get rid of the two spare chain rings in the front, I had to realize that the three chain rings were riveted. So I figured ‘what the heck, just take off everything and put a new chain ring on’. I continued this thought until I realized that the crank corroded with the bottom bracket and there was just no way … which made me once more appreciate my choice for GIANT (10 years ago) where even the single parts are still of a decent quality. Fischer sucks (and I don’t mean Gary Fisher).
