I've been visiting your forum for a while now, and i now have a reason to join in!!!
I'm happy to say that i have purchased a (new to me) used road bike, and i would like your opinion on whether or not i got a good deal.
It's a KHS triathlete 12 speed road bike (don't know the year).
It has shifters on the down tube that read "suntour"
I'm positive that the crank arms are aluminium and they read "sugino vp130"
The front and rear derailleur and the caliper brakes read "suntour alpha 5000"
The only things i think need changing are the tires, i think they are the original ones that came with the bike wen new, they are old and dry, they are 700x25c.
Also, the rear wheel is "loose" i think it's the quick release pin/shaft??? it doesn't matter if i tighten the pin, it still wobbles and you can see that it's between the hub and the pin, it wobbles just a little bit, you can ride it and not notice it, but i think if i ride it i might make it worse.
Ok so now the price!!! i got it for 90 dollars at the swap meet.
So, what i'd like to know is, did i get a good price???
How can i fix/change the rear quick release???
Also i plan on riding this bike as a recreational bike and possibly for short commutes, what tire size can make the ride more comfortable??? because the tires it has now are super thin but i don't know what max width will the rim accept.
Thanks in advance for any reply!!!
