    This could be the best solution. And you can take all the time you need to shop for parts to keep the cost of refurb low.

    There is your answer. If you update the old bike, it still won't be what you really want. And you'll be into it more than you could sell it for after you buy the CF bike (you know you will do that...

    What is the problem? Those cranks are pretty much bulletproof. Is it a bearing issue? Chainring issue? Or actually the crank?

    Maybe. As I read your question, you want to install a square taper BB in a modern frame. It will work in many but there are a number of other "standards" out there now. Some can be adapted, some...

    +1 A quality used bike from that era will be well within budget. Make sure it fits and don't think a soft saddle will make your butt less sore. Only time in the saddle will do that. And...

    You don't want to use a lot of pressure when washing or you'll force water into places you don't want it to go. It shouldn't be that messy. I usually just work over an old bath mat.

    My wife didn't pay enough attention to her shoulder and it froze up. She is in the process of getting it "unfrozen" but says the process has been more painful than breaking the wrist.

    Why stop there? Skateboarders, roller skaters, rollerbladers, scooter riders, the list goes on. Heck, I've been walked into by pedestrians too busy texting to watch where they are going. Add in...

    I've used one for that purpose in the past and it is OK but, as noted, has you working quite low. And doesn't help if you are working on the front wheel/brakes.

    They get "whooped" from being ridden while loose. The hardened steel of the shaft does a number on the alloy of the crank when the crank is not tightened properly. Damage can be done quite quickly.
