I have a 1987 Schwinn High Sierra that I am building, and I need some advice. All I have is the frame and fork, with the brakes installed (rollercam).
My first question is about headset and bottom bracket - what do I need to measure to find the right size?
The fork is threaded, so I know I need a threaded headset, and I am pretty sure it is 1", so I am looking to buy a reasonably priced sealed headset to have the shop install it - all they have are Chris King, and no way I am spending that kind of $$. What measurements do I need to make to get the right size? Any recomendations?
Bottom Braket - What do I need to measure to get the right one? One again, recommendations are welcome.
Once I get it that far together, I will come back for more help.
I will take pictures - it is a sweet frame - double butted cro-moly, in black chrome.
I don't plan to do any serious mountain biking with it - it will be used to pull my daughter's trailer and ride some mighty flat dirt trails around here in N Texas.
You helped immensely with my Suteki (I need to put up pictures of that beautiful ride as well) and I am hoping for some good advice on this bike as well.
