old trek brought back to life

The other day i noticed the rear tire wobbling on my specialized cross roads sport. Checked it out and one spoke was torn completly out of the rim. Still waiting on my new trek verve. so I dug out my wifes old trek 7200 from 2002 and had been hanging in my daughters barn since 2007. Needless to say it was in a sorry state. Flat tires covered in filth. took it home and gave it a good bath. low and behold the 19 year old bontrager tires and tubes held air. adjusted the rear derailer alittle brakes still worked good. took it down the road and everything worked fine. Dont know how long the tires and tubes will last but we will see. Hopefully the bike will last a couple more months till my new one come in.

When you're writing a post, there's a little photo icon in the tool bar; click on it and go from there. When you've added your photos, the "upload" button is in the upper right corner.
