The bicycle makeover challenge!

Lately I have decided that I want to cross train running with cycling. Two problems though occurred as I made this decision:

  1. I don't have a bicycle
  2. I don't know how to ride a bicycle
Yes yes, I a am 21 year old man who still doesn't know how to ride a bicycle, but I have a feeling I am not alone!

So, I started talking with my friends and siblings and they suggested that I buy one of those cheap bikes first so that I can practice and later on move to those high-tech shinny ones if I would like. So, that was the plan!

A few days later, my one friend Mr. Youma Shiozawa brought me the body of his old bike. It was a great off-road bike, he told me I can have it and I would just need to bring new life to it.

Challenge accepted!!
 I went straight to the bike shop near our house to find out how much it would cost to go Frankenstein on this bike and well it ranged from about 5k-6k. A little bit of a whopper right? Well, I promise this bike will live again! Check back in a few months, I'll update it with the modifications that I add each time.
