    Whether it's worth it, depends on what you've got, how nasty it is and your balance of cash / time on hand.

    I usually weigh somewhere between 195 and 210 and have done great with whatever well-made classic style wheels I find for sale used. There are tons of great wheels that didn't get used much and then...

    I don't think fanciness makes a damn bit of difference whether it gets stolen or not. Just means it costs more to replace.

    The average bike thief doesn't know. He might discriminate against stuff...

    A lot of us just show up for the pictures, what can I tell you.

    My God, man. Will you leave us NOTHING about which to snob.

    We're the only cyclists on the planet who brag about how cheap our stuff is. We encourage one another to not pay more even when some of...

    A modern Deore long cage should have no problem with your big cog and should be able to wrap just about any combination you can get a front der to shift. A 22 tooth difference up front is very common...

    Is it possible that one of those crap sets of cheap stem shifters will have posts that are compatible with decent DT shift levers?

    Or, and this won't be cheap, have a frame builder braze you up a...

    If the crank and headset spin smooth on the Moto it's probably worth finishing up the project. Not cheap, but not gouging either. If there's any hitch or question about what's there, pass. Unfinished...
