soon as I can afford to get some bigfoot style platform pedals for the V2100, I am gonna put the alloy pedals that are on the V2100 now, on this bike..... and most likely toss the stock V2100 pedals I have on this bike now

while I wait for parts, I decided to put the commuter stuff back on.....to make a bit more room on the narrow handlebars I took off the bar ends and moved the grips, shifters and brake levers out.... i was suprised how heavy the bar ends were compared to the origin8 ones on my V2100

put on the freewheel and axle I ordered from amazon ...( funny , its the same freewheel that came on my V2100 stock).... had to reuse the cones from the old axle being as the washers that cover the bearings were different ....went together good otherwise...... no play in the wheel now and the freewheel is nice and quiet..... still gotta play with deraileur adjustment .... but its ready to ride after that :D

have several rides on this and still rides great...... the kickstand has been a pos since day one... finally got tired of the bike falling over or having to position the bike a certain way, so off it came and into the trash it went.... I tried fixing it a few times but could never get it to work no matter what i did to it or how it was positioned on the bike .... seemed like it was too short or something....
