First Bike Ever! (sort of) Have a few questions.
Hi my name is Charlie, I'm from Columbus IN.
I am extremely new to biking. I've never owned a street bike, but today I drove by a bike on the side of the rode for free. So I took it. It is a Schwinn World Sport, and that's really all I know about it. It has a bit of a rust issue.
I've replaced the rear tire/tube and put on a new chain.
I have a few noob questions. I've never used shifters like this before (the two handles next to the handle bars) They don't seem to do anything? So I don't really know what to look for on that.
Also my rear brakes aren't coming together close enough to do much stopping power (I think I'll be able to figure that out.)
So If anyone has any suggestions that would be awesome. I look forward to learning alot!
Here are some pictures!
