Thank you for all of the helpful input. I just acquired this bike not too long ago and I've already replaced the bottom bracket, the wheels (with spares that I had from my GT road bike), the chain and crankset, and I've also replaced the annoying grip shifters... clearly, I don't mind getting my hands dirty. I was told by the PO that bike did sit out last winter (which is why I replaced the drivetrain).
With that said, I will disassemble the front steering hardware to see if there are any cracks or unsmooth race tracks. The notches don't really bother me much, but if it's something fixable I don't mind doing it.
