I didn't remove the B screw during cleaning so I wanted to check to see if anyone else had this problem and it was not a B screw adjustment issue. I think the spring inside the RD may be shot. ...

The black chrome did not survive as well as I had hoped. Surface rust and lotsa' cloudiness. Any reason not to use an oxalic bath on it?

You've got a nice bunch of bikes. It's impossible to attempt any serious appraisal without multiple, good pics of each bike. Depending on what you paid; you may have made a great deal.

Looks like a deal to me!!! Be careful of the plastic cable guides on the top tube. They are easily broken and expensive to replace.

There are many bikes that will fit your needs. Learn to decipher CL ads. Some of the best deals have little (or no) descriptions and crappy pictures. You can usually see Ashtabula and cottered cranks...

Who's swapped 28" wheels to 700? Is it worth it for expanded tire choices?

My wifes' main ride is a 90s Cannondale H700 hybrid. It's a great bike, but needs new shoes. I never realized it has 28" rims. Whodathunkit? I can probably come up with a set of 700c road rims. ...
