    Nasty dent, should be safe to ride for a good long while though.
    Keep an eye on it for cracks, replace if any show up. See if Marin does crash/damage replacement on frames, some do.

    You'll need to have the back of the fork drilled to get the same brake up front. I did it to my 86' world sport and the stopping power went from almost none to being able to endo my 225lbs. I did...

    It'd be a good idea to have the seat tube scrubbed of rust. I'm having a brain fart on the name of the bit, but it's more or less steel wool on a rod. That may let ya get the seat post further into...

    Bolt cutters get through cable locks very easily, U locks easily too, but thicker ones take more oomph. Cable locks should only be used to keep cheap stuff attached, like your $50 wheel or saddle. ...

    Graphite in the keyhole, teflon spray on the other bits. Doesn't need to be bicycle specific (same goes with every other type of lube used on a bike, but that starts a debate.)

    Vittoria Rando Hypers, or Rando regular/plus if ya want more flat protection. They're much less expensive, and IMO better than Marathon tires.

    Ya need housing on both sides of the interrupt lever, so your setup works fine. I didn't have to re-wrap my bars after installing one on my bike that was already wrapped.

    I went through three hard-cases, all of them had the tread pull off the casing within 400 miles of being new. I avoid them for a number of reason, durability being one.

    I bought one over a standard pointy/vented/flashy helmet cause it's apparently safer. If I'm going to have a silly looking and uncomfortable doodad on my head for purported safety, it's going to be...

    Tripple shielding is a "higher performance" method, or just aramidic/kevlar (fabric.) It's lighter, but less effective at stopping flats.

    Aero bars maybe?
    I chatted with a guy who had BMX style bars instead of a flat bar, his hands were at mid chest or so. He said it worked great, despite it looking odd.
