I just bought a new (used) bike from a guy, and it should be delivered this Friday. The guy had converted the bike to singlespeed, but was including the cassette, shifters, chainrings, that originally came with the bike. I talked the guy down in price so I felt like it was asking too much to have him re-assemble it back to geared, even though he said it was ok. I just told him to leave it a singlespeed and that I would convert it back to geared myself.
I spent a lot of money on the bike, and kind of want it to be perfect for atleast a short while, now I'm worried that I'll screw it up! I know I can do it but I'm not terribly confident I will get everything just right. Anyone want to help? How much would a bike shop charge?
Here's the bike I got : http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBC ... spid=39216
(I didn't pay that much or even close to the ridiculous MSRP)
