Murray Street Baja
#1
Hey all here is my commuter work bicycle! It is a Murray Street Baja. Ugly looking critter but I must say rides well! When I need the speed even though the frame is steel tubing the gear ratio is there for a 10 spd. I'm not sure on this but I do believe it was intended to be a Street/Offroad type of bike when they made it. I stripped it down repainted cleaned up the parts etc. I really like riding it. Well here it is....
Yes that's good ole Zadey lol in the background.

Ok I do stand corrected on the size to which I am sorry. They are 2.10 x 1.75 and here is the exact link I purchased them from.... http://www.amazon.com/Kenda-Bicycle-Gumwall-26-Inch-1-75-Inch/dp/B002DWZD2I/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1306548359&sr=8-2-fkmr1
Also here are a couple pictures.

P.S. I meant "nosey" not mosey lol.

I just looked those up! Nice tires for commuting! I kept mine close to original because I need a little traction for the small part I go off road.

MAN I know I was tired when I posted the tire size sheeese! The CORRECT tire size is 26 x 1.75 lmao!!! I'll add that it is a 10 spd, 26" (obviously lol), the saddle bags and rear rat trap rack are by schwinn. Other then that computer I use is Bell F-20, lighting system is Schwinn Solar front and rear lights. (By the way if someone is trying to sell them for more then 14.00 it is WAY too much. )

Well I figured I would update this. Today I put the Innova Winter Tread Spiked Tires ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001CK2IXY/ ) from last winter and pretty much getting ready for winter to actually soon. The shifter/brake cables were replaced with new ones. Brake pads were still soft rubber so I left them alone. Tomorrow it get put back together and give it a test ride. Have to wait for snow for the tires though Tongue .
