    New to Commuting...centurion comp ta

    Just bought a old Centurion Comp TA off craigslist
    I havent ridden in a LONG time
    Wondering what changes I should make if any.
    The roads here in Honolulu are pretty rough, maybe bigger tires?
    right now it has continental ultra sport 27x1&1/8
    Also any suggestions for a relatively inexpensive odometer/speedometer?
    any other suggestions are appreciated

    I suggest just riding it and if it seems to fit your needs. If it works as is, sweet. Fatter tires will slow you down a tad...depending how wide you go. However I think w/ 27" rims the widest you can easily find are 1 & 3/8". It's good practice to just watch where you're going and avoid potholes...as long as avoiding them doesn't put you in greater harm. Your local bike shop should have a selection of bike computers in a range of prices. The brand CatEye is pretty popular.

    Have fun!
