    Throw some linear pull levers on a bike that doesn't have V brakes. You'll see real quick.

    Well alright then.

    Hard to tell from the nearly useless pictures but it looks like the Spalding has aluminum rims while the Raleigh has steel.

    I found a 12 pt Craftsman 15mm deep well at Sears that fits.

    This is true, but doesn't really have anything to do with quill vs threadless.

    Didn't they change the pull ratio for 10 speed mountain groups?

    I've always assumed the bushings pivot on the pin, but now that you've got me thinking about it, I'm not 100% sure.

    Meguiar's Ultimate Compound followed by Meguiar's Cleaner Wax for the paint (be very careful with the ultimate compound when working around the decals, it can take them right off). For the chrome, I...

    Yup, Capella lugs, definitely a '73.

    Here's my green '73, as bought and as built:

    I never put much faith in Raleigh serial numbers, they tend to follow no logical pattern whatsoever.

    Roughly '73. Post a close up of the lugs, that'll be a dead giveaway if it's a '73 (the only year to use Capella lugs). Looks all original to me right down to the bar tape (but who keeps a Super...

    Yeah it's a tough time of year to be looking. You might have some luck if you're willing to drive up to Columbus, I could give you the name/number of some decent shops that sell used to check with...

    The Lotus I think is maybe a bit overpriced for an aluminum framed bike. Typically steel frames will give a nicer ride, is more durable, and generally is more desirable for an older road bike. 600...

    I suspect the Trek is a 52cm rather than a 54, but my eye could be off.

    Other than steel wheels the Miyata isn't necessarily a terrible bike, but the Schwinn is literally better in every way and...

    This: 54cm Trek 460 Road Bike could be worth looking at too, although mismatched wheels always make me (maybe unreasonably) suspicious. I'm assuming you're shortish and need a smaller sized bike?

    You won't be able to stop worth a crap if the rims get wet. $160 isn't an amazing deal, but is fair-ish for that year World Sport if it's overhauled and in good shape, in a major city, this time of...

    It's worth noting that when you send in the recalled crankset, Shimano will not only send you a brand new ugly Tourney crankset, but also a brand new chain, sealed cartridge bottom bracket, and front...

    Looks like a basic model that someone put a tank and rack on. I don't think Schwinn ever sold a model with painted fenders and a tank. Also on models that would have had the tank as original...

    Skip the Miyata, steel wheels. At those prices I'd go for the Schwinn, that looks like an early 90s model, by which point the World Sport was a pretty solid bike.

    Edit: Looks like a 1992 model. ...

    Oh boy, looks like the rear derailleur cable is missing. You might end up better off replacing the rear derailleur and shifter so you can use a standard cable, rather than try to track down one of...

    Hard to tell from the pictures, but it looks like the front wheel is alloy and the rear is steel, suggesting the front wheel was replaced at some point. That, plus the fact that the front wheel...

    If you have one of those X-in-1 screwdrivers with the removable/reversable bits, usually that'll fit right over those nuts if you take the bit out.
