    I'm in with jyi and le mans--I vote for some defect possibly (likely) combined with a previous front end collision. Have you pulled the forks to have a look. That may give you important clues.

    Now for a less silly answer.
    Yes, putting on a larger front chainring or smaller cogs on the rear will increase her top end speed potential. As always it comes down to the question of how much do...

    Tell her to put on more weight. Seems to have worked for me! I'm a monster going downhill!

    My wife once asked me why guys kick each other when they're down. I told her because when they're down on the ground they can't move as fast. Easier target.

    I was just about to post that link. Yes, I think that is what you want. I just did the same thing you are doing but I needed concave version, and I went with the A050 shifters instead. (Primarily...

    I would second the craigslist idea. Tons of parts on there.
    You would also do yourself a favor to lurk around in the Bicycle Mechanics forum on here. Just reading will give you a pretty good handle...

    Like others have said, 200 pounds is a great goal, but it's a long term goal. You need to have some short term goals that you can knock out to see you are making progress.

    You will find that you...

    I second Doohickie's suggestion. The Cowtown Classic routes are pretty nice. The roads a fairly quiet and there are cue sheets for a variety of distances.

    I'm not real mechanic but from what I can see it looks like your option is going to be an allen wrench on the backside of the pedal.

    I have seen those and I really like the looks of that option. Price is a bit high though. I don't mind the slight added movement to use something mounted elsewhere on the bars--either bar ends or...

    I've lusted after that one. It is almost like a piece of art. If it wasn't $200 I would have already been on it. I see it in my future but not in this phase of Clyde-ifying the Schwinn.

    Somewhere in the back of my mind I was figuring that a 30 tooth cog was going to be a no-go. I suppose that the priority would be to change from the downtube shifter and adding the 7 speed freewheel...

    Changing freewheel, DT Shifters etc. . .

    I'm surprised nobody has invoked the "unless there's pictures it didn't happen" clause.

    Where in "D/FW"?
    D/FW covers quite a bit of space. It might make it easier if you narrowed it down a bit.

    They can be. I'm thinking most who are opposed to them assume the cartridge will be thrown in the trash after it's used. In Dallas we don't recycle anything. If it isn't new we throw it away or tear...

    I think the usual objection to them is disposing of the metal cartridge rather than the CO2.

    If I had seen there was a second page of posts I would have known that TXsailor already covered the gearing thing.
