Three years ago I bought a second hand bike, which I used for cycling on average 10 miles a day (mostly commuting). It turned out to have many problems, so over time I replaced many of the parts on it with new stuff: the saddle, seat post, back wheel, tires, crank and back sprocket are all new. Two weeks ago the frame snapped, and given all the problems I've had, I just bought a new bicycle altogether (yay!)
So what should I do with the old bike?!
I want to dump it, but I'm reluctant to throw out all the new gear on it. Unfortunately only the seat post and saddle are compatible with my new bike. I was thinking that maybe I could look around for a cheap frame and use it to make a decent back up bike - but presumably the chances of me finding a cheap frame that's compatible with the wheels and crank and brakes is close to 0?
I live in New York City, so storage space is also a factor...!
