How To Fix Up An Old MTB | Mountain Bike Maintenance. Neil's found an old GT I Drive Downhill Bike in a friends shed...perfect for some experiments! But first, it's time to check it over! It's an older bike that's seen a lot of wear and tear in the past. It needs a full check over to see what needs replacing, what can be run and if anythings outright broken! After that, we can look at how to fix some of the issues plaguing it and get it back on the hill!

Older bikes could have several issues that you'd want to stay away from. Scratched fork stanchions, blown suspension units, cracks in the frame, even alloy spoke nipples could leave you wishing you'd kept your money in your pocket.
So there's nothing glaringly obvious but a few little issues here and there that you'd like to get in good working order before hitting the hill! Bottom brackets, gearing and drivetrain, tyres and headsets. Replace or maintain how you see fit!
