Hey I am not in these pages often. I don't know Jack about MTBing. But..... I have a 29er hardtail which is only used for Daddy/Daughter rides and is screaming "convert me to an Adventure Bike!" Now adventure bike is not a widely used term. Just something I made up for the description of what I want to do. Currently it has MTB handlebars and groupset. 3x10 SRAM. I'd like to try and put road handlebars on it and SOMEHOW rig the gears up so that I can use traditional road type hoods as I prefer this hand position on long rides. Also I have looked at rigid carbon front ends for it. The stock fork is crap and just makes it heavy. Wheels and brakes will remain stock. I do have an older 10spd Ultergra Groupset in the cupboard with shifters which I can use if I need to. Ideas please? Thanks. I want to build a bike that I can go riding on, pretty much anywhere, for a reasonably cheap outlay.
Just wondering how often you should change your bottom bracket? Giving my bike a quick clean this morning and i removed the cranks and looking at my bottom bracket closely, the part on the inside that spins around seemed a bit loose on the drivetrain side. Could it be time for a new one? Probably five years old, done a fair few km's, regularly cleaned and lubed. Thoughts.
