I am currently unemployed and on a tight budget. I have recently had a nice older bike fall in my lap, it was given to me by my brother since he hasn't ridden in years and only casually rode when he had it. It's a Giant RS900 and from the info I can find on the web it seems to be either a late 80's or early 90's bike.
Up on a rack it goes through all the gears and the brakes work but hasn't been ridden for years. What would you all suggest for a tune up and assuming you had a $150 dollar budget and could use ebay and craigslist effectively, what might you suggest for tuneup/upgrades?
I know many will say it's not worth the effort, cheaper to buy a new bike, etc, but just assume it's ride this or don't ride at all. So given that....any suggestions? All help is appreciated....thanks guys.
