No time wasted here. Tore the bike down to the frame and checked out all the parts. Its going to need some replacement parts, and some love for the rest of them.
Removed the white plastic cages, these will go on my black and white scheme CX bike. Took off the brand new Shimano Hydro brakes, Shimano Deore driveline came off and is in good shape too.
Crankset if totally fubared. BB is toast and broken, crank threads for the extractor tool are stipped, small chaingring is missing two bolts and now resembles an old Bio-Pace chainring. The bb shell on the frame has significant rust inside, although it does not seem to be enough to be concerned about. Needs a good cleaning for sure.
Down to the frame. Bare frame weighs in at 5lbs 1 oz.
One thing I noticed was the seatpost is 26.8mm. An odd size, not sure who even makes this size anymore. I`ll need a new one as the head bolt has stripped out the aluminum clamp for the saddle rails.
Part 3 will be coming soon!
