2006 Raleigh Rx 1.0, 1990 Cannondale ST400, 1983 Miyata Two Ten
Greetings from Philadelphia
Hi everyone. I've been reading the forum for years, and am happy to finally be joining the conversation today. I've had several bikes throughout the years: toy store 10-speeds, Cannondale and KHS mountain/urban assault rides, a Fuji Track, and now a Raleigh Rx 1.0. I have done fair amount of maintenance and component upgrades on my own--far less than many of you, but I'll be glad to offer any lessons I've learned from my experience where I can.
My main reason for joining today is that I pulled a 1970's Bridgestone out of a dumpster over the weekend, and I need some help determining what it is, exactly. I'm thinking about turning into a single-speed commuter, but I don't want to alter it too much if it's worth substantial money as-is. If you have time, please take a look.
