Meet Nick

My wife's bike was built out of bits and pieces, a 2005 Kona Fire Mountain frame that was $20.  It had a severe dent in the downtube that the seller assured me was fine, and it was, for years.  Last week it cracked, though, so it was time to replace it.

Recyclistas had a similar vintage Brodie frame, same size, with disc tabs, so this weekend I swapped all the parts across.

Took the time to route the cables properly this time, so the steering won't bind, and replaced the saddle too.

We don't normally name our bikes, but this one is named Nick.
