The Black ICE is back on commuter duty

After a mere 86 weeks of maintenance and updates, my old black Sprint is finally back on the road. Lets say, it took ‘slightly’ longer than anticipated.

She got a 2-speed Patterson drive, new XT 9-speed derailleur, a new 15 FET controller, ‘updated’ front wheels, new fenders and basically every other worn part replaced.

Two weeks commuting in foul weather and she already looks like a mess again.

    Hey Thanks for all the great info! Just curious about removing unused controller wires.
    Can they be simply cut off or should they be unsoldered?

    Thank you for your time and effort!
