I'm an older ex-cycler (not quite in the 50+ category) looking to get back into riding. Not heavy duty stuff, just some light touring.
I have a very old bike that I built from scratch when I was a kid. At the time, it was pretty high end. I'm not sure where it would fall today - thirty years later. At a minimum, I'd want to ditch the silk sew-ups (do they still make sew-ups?) and replace 'em with something a little more robust. But I'm wondering if it makes sense to convert a 35-year-old criterium bike or if I should just get rid of it and go out and buy something new?
