    When you buy a new stem, I'd suggest getting a much longer one. Otherwise, the grips on those bars will be hitting your knees, and you'll feel like you are driving a school bus.

    That BB has a plastic adjustable cup that is total crap.

    That Andel is a very good crank, but it requires a 110mm JIS BB, so the 107mm Miche BB won't work.

    A wider tire is also taller, which increases the overall wheel diameter, which in turn increases the gearing slightly. Look at a gear calculator and you'll see what I mean.

    You probably just need to tighten the bottom bracket, crank arms and chainring bolts. That will usually stop all the noises. But if you really want to change the crankset, then just go for it instead...

    Looks like you could just buy a different chainring.

    It's actually the brake calipers that are higher quality with dual pivots and thicker less flexible arms. Also, they are easier to adjust with their centering screws.

    As to the tire sizes, you've...

    I think you will find that most under $300 bikes will come with pretty crappy tires, pedals and saddle. Heck, even my $440 Kilo WT that I bought 5 years ago had awful stock tires that I changed out...

    None of those bikes count then, because they are on sidewalks, which is technically not the street.

    I see your pedantic remark, and raise you another.

    Those inserts are for an aluminum frame, and are unnecessary for a steel frame like yours.

    I bought a Pre Cursa from Dolan in the UK, and the shipping costs were astronomical.

    Today I crunched some numbers and found out that this year I've spent more than three times as much on my teeth as on my bikes. So either I'm spending too much on my teeth or too little on my bikes.

    Makes about as much sense as putting French parts on my Mercier Kilo WT and Motobecane Messenger. But, yeah, it's more about matching the quality of the parts to the frame, than country of origin....

    That bike probably came with a QR that is internal cam, so it should be OK. Horizontal dropouts were the norm until the 1980s.

    The Tange Passage headset is made in Japan and is very good quality for the price. Nothing fancy, but will definitely last a long time if properly greased and adjusted. You will be hard pressed to...
