    Lemond Rev Master parts.....

    I know this is a shot in the dark, but someone gave me a classic Lemond Rev Master in decent shape. Most of the spin bike is in good shape, but there is a lot of corosion on the cranks and the bolts. the bolts are easy to replace, but the crank is crazy exspensive from the lemond site. I can almost get a NOS durace or ultegra crank for what they are asking.

    It looks like a pretty standard bottom bracket, and the bikes are pretty old now. there must be a lot of these sitting around health clubs. Does anyone know of a good site for parts for these bikes? Can I use stanadard bike parts for the bottom brackets and cranks?

    I know a few bike shops maintain these things from time to time, so I figured I'd take a chance someone on here may have worked on these spin bikes....

    $53 is crazy expensive?

    Actually considering I have seen 105 cranks on closeout for less than $100, paying $100 for the old chrome plated crank that comes with the revmaster $50 is kind of steep for only one arm. I think it's $90 for the right one.

    These aren't new spin bikes anymore and found them not very corrosion resistant at all. The metal used in some of the parts seems "soft" and the chrome plating they use comes off easily. Still a good solid bike, it just seems quality is not what I expect on a normal bike.

    This is kind of a winter project so not expecting a lot, but repainting the bike and making the chrome stuff look good is part of it.

    Ahh...I see you have to buy both sides. That makes it a bit more expensive. I have an old Johnny G Spinner Pro and it's built like a tank. About the only thing that wears are the resistance pads.
