I've got an old bike from back in the day, and wondered if it's possible to make it a little more comfortable to ride off-road.
Since I took the photo I've fitted 2.4" tyres and removed the Magura thingy sticking up from the handlebars.
The canti's aren't great, so I'd probably need to add V-brakes (with 'travel-agents' for correct cable pull).
It's a 19" frame, and I'm about 6ft tall.
I'm not sure if a pair of 80mm travel forks, or different rigid forks would help, plus a shorter stem and different handlebars.
I'd be using it to get started in mountain biking, and when I get a different bike I could pass it on to someone else.
Is it worth bothering with? An MTB coach did advise me not to ride it - mainly due to the brakes and geometry, but I'm wondering if I could do anything to make it a decent ride.
