I knew I wasn't only one pulling this **** and somehow managed to escape the cold hands of death. Not saying it is ideal, but you can get by till things are set right.

That should be a Trek Earl, not an amazing bike but a fair SS made by one of the big names of cycling. The two top tubes make a handy place to place a u-lock and if I remember correct that plate...

Do people actually own those silly things? I have yet to encounter a bolt I couldn't hold in place by hand and get loose. Not that I work in a shop and encounter the mess some people may bring in for...

Those don't look too bad, I would just throw them in a vinegar bath for a bit then clean them up with a bit of tin foil. You'd be surprised the amount of rust you can clean up with those basic...

What he is talking about it how far the chain wraps around the freewheel before it does down to the tensioner. If your chain doesn't wrap around the freewheel enough it could explain the skip since...
