In 1980, I bought a brand new Univega road bike in California for $200. I am still riding it, and it has the original wheels. The original stainless spokes are tight, and everything seems okay. The whole bike was recently gone over by my LBS.
Yesterday, as I was bombing down a hill at 30 mph, the thought came to me: what if my 26 year old front wheel colapses? Is there any danger of this? Should I get the wheels replaced just as a precaution? Can you still get 27" wheels? How much does a decent set of wheels cost? Appreciate your input.
