Like you, I have a 20 year old ATB/MTB. Upgraded the saddle with an Origin8 AirS for $ 20. Nothing wrong with the OEM Fuji saddle it came with, just wanted to make the old bike look a little more...

I lucked into a 2015 Bianchi Kuma 27.2 for $ 550 (msrp $799), depending upon your interpretation of "luck" ? Closer to $ 600 after taxes. Not disappointed in it, but it is an entry level...

I missed the part of the 1 1/8 threadless from your original post link. I measured my Fuji earlier today, thinking I could upgrade to a 1" threadless steerer tubed suspension fork. My axle-crown...

I'd leave that one as is, maybe upgrade the seat to a modern road bike aero seat ?

And the rim brake kills the idea of 700x35c or larger with the Vilano frame. Disc brakes and then it's the rest of the frame that limits the possibilities. Better to just buy a gravel bike.

46:16 gently eased from a dead stop isn't hard on your legs unless you are riding into a headwind and/or uphill. It's all how you accelerate and warm up. I'll take a light spin around the...

My rim brakes might be a limiting factor too on tire size. I have to research those. A rule of thumb that I read on line, 1.4-2.0 times what the rim width is. 7/8 inch and the tire could be as wide...

No, you can go to a Midas muffler shop or any place in the industrial section of town and they'll probably do it for a reasonable fee ? Would it cost what a new frame or used one runs even off ebay ?...

I rode my SS/FG on a FL greenway the other day. It has 46/16 gearing on 700x25 tires. Handled it fine except where the dirt was softer and tree roots came into play. I figure with 700x35 to 700x40...

Gear inches is a formula, has to do with front tooth, rear tooth count and wheel diameter. So with a 26 inch mtb, vs a 700c FG/SS, the tooth count will have to be different to get exactly the same GI...
