I have an Apollo bike that has been with me since new, in 2001.
As it is now 15 years old and has not been ridden in many many years, I am looking to bring it back to life - but I want to do so cheaply. The bike doesn’t owe me anything, and if I was to spend much money on it I’d be better off buying a new ride.
8 speed (mixed Alivio and Acera bits)
V-brakes (frame has disc mounts)
Needs - chain and BB at a minimum. Cassette would be good. Indexing of gears is still smooth, shifts surprisingly well.
Fork might benefit from being replaced - not sure if it has seized entirely or just needs some love.
I had a look at www.clickbike.com.au, but their supply of super cheap clearance NOS parts seems to have disappeared.
