I recently upgraded to a new bike from my '99 GT Lightning. While I love this bike, the allure of new tech and a good sale at my local bike shop got the best of me. I'm obviously not going to get rid of it (to my wife's displeasure) but I'm trying to figure out the best way to repurpose it. I've replaced the tires (Forte Tsali), but otherwise have just done regular maintenance on the Diore XT components and Indy SL fork. They're all a bit worse for wear (having replaced parts over time), but still work.

It seems silly to transition a titanium frame to a simple commuter, but part of me is thinking of doing that with a new front fork with pannier spots. Maybe make it a gravel capable touring bike... go narrower on the wheelset.

I'm also not trying to spend a fortune on it. Any ideas?
