    "I did ok, not great." Correction: you did fantastic! Unbelievable deal! The Univega touring bike, or the Lotus alone for $120 would be great! The Ascent is decent, too!

    Keep the Kendas for awhile, but not too long...the gum walls start to dry out after awhile. Store them in a cool place, not an attic or storage shed where temps can get pretty high. If you get...

    1981 Fuji S-12-S

    It is an 18-speed, but they called it the "S-12-S" anyway. Put a leather saddle on it, Pleitscher rear rack, touring bags, SKS fenders, bell, frame pump, water bottle cage...

    The Diamondback is a pretty nice bike. Nothing wrong with it. The Sirrus was probably a more expensive bike when new. Looks like it has better specs, which you would expect when you are paying...

    I never before have seen anything quite like this. Since I've liked these bikes since I was a kid, I had to step up to save a '73. Under a 1/2" of sludge/grime I found paint! I have enough shiny...

    Not nearly as good as the Panasonic, but supposed to be "as new". It also has a 23" frame. Most likely 27" wheels.

    About $8 from Niagara Cycle Works. Hate to think what the LBS charged. Probably a good choice for what he was doing, but it sounds like you need nice HP tires. Yup, Paselas.

    $75? That's if you want to ride a Eurotour. They weren't really serious bikes "back in the day". It is pretty much a "clunky" low-end bike. Wheels are a PITA to "true", it's heavy, gears don't...
