    I have a 12.2. Nice bike, claimed to be 26 pounds, light for a 1970's Schwinn. As mentioned will require additional investment but a worthwhile bike when done.

    The pictures are a little small to see condition details, but it looks like a good deal on a nice bike. Enjoy!

    With that much seat post showing a new bike with a better fit should improve the ride. A touring bike (vintage) would be my choice.

    I'm out the door in 15 minutes. 5 minutes to shave and relieve myself and 10 minutes to pile on the clothes and load the bike. I organize everything the night before and shower and dress at work. In...

    I bought one new in the early 1980's when a local dept store went out of business. Probably paid about $75 then. It was a step up from my late 1970's Kmart All-Pro. Picked one up abandoned by the...

    Winter adds about 5 minutes to my preparation for a 15 mile commute when temps are 20 -30 F. Key for me is planning and organizing the night before.

    That bike is too small for you. I would flip and look for a larger frame.

    I'd lube it and ride it as is as a bad weather bike. As mentioned not worth upgrades.

    The natural variation in a wood beam is far greater than the impact of such a small hole.

    Biopace should have no impact on crank removal, as it refers to the rings. Square tapered fits can be quite tight.

    My solution as well. I don't know if it is old grease getting stiff or moisture, but the WD-40 flush worked for me on 'old' freehubs. The fact it didn't reoccur makes me believe it was old grease.
