    If your determined to spend a bunch of money then I would get a new bike. It sounds like the bike you have is about as good as its gonna get.

    It wouldn't have been fun trying to ride a gravel bike to the top of this mountain a couple days ago (nor down it) with an inch-two of snow on the rocky single track.

    I agree, 1987.
    I had one. It was a pretty great bike, especially for being pretty mid-level in the Schwinn line-up.

    I could probably (definitely) get faster than I am now if I committed a bunch of time and effort to it. But, I have too much stress in other areas of my life to stress about getting faster on the...

    Be careful. You might soon realize you've put more money into a bike that's too small than the bike is worth (been there).

    Pretty nice of your wife to buy you a bike, maybe you can use the...

    How do they accumulate so many bikes? Must take a lot of effort, even if most of them are department store junk.

    Yes, why not call if it's near you? Unlikely, but it could be. Sweet looking bike. The ad seems too intelligently written for the seller to be asking $6500.

    I am allowed two bikes in the bedroom, the rest are in the basement. And you are correct in saying the ones upstairs tend to get ridden less. At least this time of year when most of my riding is...

    True. If I am selling a bike to somebody who's main interest in it is to ride it (to get from A to B, or just to get some basic exercise) then I also feel the bike should be in safe and ride-able...

    I used to agree that this was the best principle, and I read a lot from bike flippers and others on the forums who consider it a matter of integrity to make sure the bikes are in ride-able condition...

    It's amazing (or unfortunate)that Schwinn didn't survive considering that the answer to your question is that all of the mid to high level Schwinn's of the late 80's are good bikes. I had an '87 Le...

    I just blew out the sidewall on my old mountain bike tires and need a set for the bad weather days (snow/ice). I'm on a tight budget at the moment, these at under $40.00 a set is about what I can...

    A few months ago I was about 95 miles into a 120 mile charity ride, in the middle of a brutal 15 mile climb and some guy passed me on a newish carbon fiber bike. As he passed he said "I used to have...

    Most bang for your buck:

    A KMC z50 chain, coupled with a Shimano hyperglide freewheel. The Shimano freewheels are ugly but usually worth it IMO.

    Ok, your right I should have read through this more carefully. The fact that the driver is initially in the right lane does change things some. I still would prefer to be in the right lane until I...
