Fixing Bikes 38 and 39, Apollo and Byk

Fixed up with single chainring

Byk, not much to fix.


Yesterday I was up at the Wecycle shed and fixed 2 bikes. The Byk needed brake adjustment and had a loose chainguard so not much to fix. The Apollo needed a bit more work. It is a 24", and was originally a 21 speed with a triple at the front. The triple at the front is overkill, and a 9 or 10 year old doesn't need to learn the skill of using them or need the range for the most part.

So I didn't put a triple on the front and made do with a single, then removed the front derailleur and changer. It was a wet, miserable day and I'd dressed up pretty warm and was glad of that.
