Hi, Let me start off by saying that I have barely any knowledge of the biking world. I have owned a bike for around 5 hours. So please excuse me if i say something foolish.
I picked up this free spirit earlier today and road it home (about a mile and a half journey). I payed 100$ for it. Now i know this is a lot to pay for a Department store bike (i have done a bit of research since then). On the ride home it handled decently and i didn't die.
I would like to clean it up a bit and was hoping if some one could direct me to some resources.Like a guide on dismantling it and parts that i should replace first. Another problem i just thought off is i'm a pretty big guy, around 220lbs. Is there something i should do to reinforce it? I guess im just looking for a guide to a first bike/new riders. If any one could help me out i would really appreciate it.
