hey, just wanted to get more information on my bike. like what is compatible if I want to swap parts, or things like that.
26" Huffy Crosswind (serial number 90462HUFFY6262) has lots of "cross sport" stickers
best I can guess is that it was made somewhere between '92 to '94 as it was a birthday present for myself in '94.
The grip shift, and derailleurs all work perfectly. recently put new tubes in it, other than that, all stock.
what am I looking at? from what I could best gather, a failed marketing attempt at a crossover bike by huffy, lol, but it suits riding just fine. I'll probably keep it till it croaks a terrible death because of sentiment, I plan on purchasing a lighter and better bike sometime in the future. (christmas? pretty please?)
so excuse the post if it sounds newbish to forum rules, but I searched. and I searched the net. and I can't find much of anything. hoping you guys might know what I'm looking for... (which parts are replaceable with what, ect.) I counted the teeth on the tallest and shortest of the 6 rear gears, and the two up front but have been too lazy to count the rest. if anybody has the ability to pull up that information, cool too.
also, reccomendations for $300-$400 city bikes? yeah I don't have a huge budget, but something functional that's easy to work on, and fun/comfortable to ride.
