New(sorta) to MTB
well hey guys, im coming from the ss/fg forum, i've pretty much only used a mountain bike as a kid when riding around town. recently, i picked up a circa 1993 giant rincon for $15 at a thrift store(nice find?). Originally, i was planning on flipping it for some cash, but my friend told me to keep it as a communter on rainy/lazy days(tired of getting wet butts on my hipster-mobile) and throw on some fenders, and maybe hybrid it with a road parts(i live in suburban los angeles, so i only do city riding 99% of the time).
my questions are
- Should i keep it?
- are 1 inch threaded forks common?
- my chainring is oval, is that a problem?
- anything else i should look out for?
