    I have the same bike. Just bought a fairly cheap Fixed / Free 27" wheel from a local shop. 16T fixed / 18T Freewheel. Cost $100. Works well. That's a great base bike to build on.

    Personally I'd just keep riding it and keep and eye out for it beginning to bulge. If you are not comfortable with that, I'd go for switching it to the back as has been discussed.

    If the guy let the other systems go he probably didn't maintain the septic. Regardless, plan either a new system (25,000+ in my area) or connection to the sewer. Reduce the price by whichever you...
