Pics from a similar thread in the General Forums. I'm very new to this hobby/passion. My plan is very simple, to eventually replace all the rusted components with new ones (that fit).
I am currently in the market looking for a new saddle and to invest in a helmet and I found both for a reasonable deal on Nashbar. I also want to support my LBS by purchasing items there whenever I can.
I guess my first call for help would be ID. I would like to know the model of the bike so I can do an online search for different projects of the same bike.
Secondly, what is a good way of determining whether or not a component will fit? For example, I would like to replace the SunTour derailleur, crank set, and gear. What specific details can I look under to know if it is compatible. Also for it being an 80s bike, I think that it'll be more of a challenge. Correct me if I'm wrong.
That's it for now. If no one minds, I also would like to use this thread as sort of a journal and update it with pics whenever I can.
Thanks a lot.
