    Tires come to mind. It's possible to buy a reliable and safe tire for less than $20 on sale, but a well made and smooth riding tire is worth the investment.

    You might have a Uniglide freehub, see Shimano Cassettes & Freehubs

    If you have a Uniglide freehub, you need to use a matching Uniglide cassette.
