    Guessing a bike of that vintage with suicide levers would be on the low end and probably not one that would have come with genuine leather-wrapped bars. Look at the end caps. They look like they...

    Till you try it out, there is no way to tell if it is too big. If it fits, jump on it. It is a low-end bike but will be more suited to distance than your hybrid. It will help you see what is...

    I've got the A23s and ran 23mm tires when I first got them. They worked fine. Running 25mm now. One thing with the A23s, they are a bit of a chore to mount tires. I gave up on rim strip and went...

    Make/model of cranks have no relation to threading of bottom bracket, only spindle length. Need to remove the existing BB to determine what you have.

    Without knowing the geometry of the frame or the rise of the stem, not sure how this would be known.

    That is true if the steerer is carbon. Some carbon forks have alloy steerers and a star nut is fine on those.

    I've had a couple of sets of low spoke count wheels. Both were pretty low end and both held up to my 230 or so pounds over everything I threw at them. A Camry took out one set and a...

    I'm running the 35mm MetroKs on my commuter and my wife's commuter. They are nice tires for the price and pretty close to 35mm. My older son has StradaKs on his SS (which he used as his college...

    Assuming it is the right size for you, I think it is a decent deal. I wouldn't worry about the wheels unless they give you problems. Change tires to better suit your riding style and terrain if...

    Between my wife and I, we have 4 Fuji bikes. Ultegra-equiped road bikes (Roubaix RC and Finest 1.0) and Tiagra/105-equipped CX bikes turned commuters. They have all been great bikes. Would not...

    That is a cassette so you are dealing with a freehub. As dirty as that wheel looks, I'd start by removing the cassette and flushing then lubing the freehub to see if you can free up the pawls.

    Yeah, not much you can do (unless you can find a frame with a much shorter head tube to use the fork on). And you aren't the first one to make that stupid mistake, I beat you by several decades.

    The stem is what holds everything together. You'd need to find a clamp to take over the job of the threadless stem (assuming you didn't cut it so short there isn't room even for a clamp).

    Welcome! I think your Sedona (assuming it is in overall good condition and fits you properly) would be a great starting point. I would skip the adjustable stem and get a fixed, high-rise stem and...

    Or look at converting to a recessed nut style of mounting and use the Ultegra (if the reach is right).

    If you go the co-op route, you will gain knowledge and know your bike intimately. Though it might take a bit longer, I would definitely go that way.

    The Aliner is not going to have a lot of room when closed and that space is probably better used for camping stuff (chairs, etc.). A rack on the Aliner roof is a good solution for carrying while...
