long story short
THERE IS TOO MUCH INFORMATION OUT THERE!!!!
i cant sort it all out, i dont know where to go for parts, dont know what i need to replace, i know squat.
show me a laptop and ill spout out its specs and tune it up just right, a bike, im lost.
i bought a schwinn varsity '78 last week and i love it, but its got all stock parts (AFAIK) and the tire is literally falling apart, the sides are just falling off. it rides fine, did about 5 miles yesterday but i want to get a new set of tires and probably just use the tubes till they pop (unless someone warns me different), but i dont know where to start.
i found these http://cgi.ebay.com/27-x-1-1-4-black...0|293:1|294:50
which i would gather is cheap, i guess i want to make this a beater bike, its my first but i also want it to be special, ya know?
if people want ill take pictures and you can judge for yourselves.
