Tune-up on Pansonic DX-2000
I have what I believe to be an '83 DX-2000 touring bicycle. My Dad got it while going to OSU. I used it as my main source of transportation now that I a in college.
Serial number (on head tube): 3D16235
Dia-Compe brake set and levers
Tourney bottom bracket
Shimano 600 derailleurs and thumb shifters.
I replaced the worn cotton bar tape with Bontrager cork rubber grip tape. The brake hoods are Dia-Compe rubber hoods bought online from Velo-Orange.
Anyway, I have slowly been making repairs to get it back to it's original shape, and would like to replace some minor parts.
I know the brake cables are unwinding at the ends. I would like to replace them. Does a specific brand matter?
I use this as my commuter bike, so I would like to also add fenders for riding in the rain when need-be. Suggestions? I am considering a set of 37mm polished aluminum fenders from Velo-Orange. Just need to measure first to make sure they'll fit.
Also considering a bike computer. Suggestions?
