New bike or new drive
#1
Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew what make/model/year this bike is.

Also if it is worth fixing or just dumping and getting a new one.
I think it needs a new drivertrain.

Anything can help.

The Chain slips under foot pressure. You replied to my other post.

I am having issues with one of my bikes (Malvern star Rock trails) this bike is a hard tail Mountain bike I got it a few months back and just started to fix it up. It is a perused bike and I have clean it , lined up the front and rear derailleur, checked for stiff links and worn teeth but all seems fine also have checked for chain stretch and all seem good. The one conclusion I have came up with it the chain is to long by 3 or 4 links but my bike store said that it’s might not be the problem. So if you can help me in any way it would be very helpful.

Bill thinks it is worth to fix every bike. I'd say: do you really like the bike? Do you enjoy how it rides? Then: yes, you could replace (and upgrade) the drive train. Last year's parts are cheap and you can get a decent setup for not too much money. Personally I'd say from the components used and the look of the bike (saddle, stem etc.) it is more of a lowish end bike. If you really want to fix (well, upgrade) it: do so.

I figured since you always quote the "rims are consumables" I could do likewise... Wink
