Keeping the old Univega?
Greetings. Looking for some advice regarding buying vice fixing up. Just getting back into the biking scene after many years away. A number of friends are pushing me to purchase a new, higher-end bike (Pinarello, Felt, etc. with a minimum of Ultegra or Chorus groups) to ride with them. I currently have two Cannondale hybrids and a '82 Univega Sportour 12-speed (purchased new) that is in remarkably good condition. It's fitted with Shimano Altus LT and Dia-Compe components. Everything is original and all there. My question is this: is it worthwhile to put some money and effort into this bicycle, or just spend $2-3K on a new one. I always liked the way the Sportour rode and I know that it's a '82 Ford compared to a new Corvette. Should I use it as a beater and buy a new bike, or go the old school route. Thanks,
