    I have a Technomic on my drop bar conversion that I rode across country on. Worked great for me, but my bike frame is one of the largest that Schwinn offered, so I didn't need any extra rise to make...

    As long as you aren't doing irreversible damage to the frame then change what you want, as long as you keep the original parts. The one thing that I hate to see are old road bikes with modern wheels...

    From what I can see (stamped dropouts, suicide levers, etc) it is probably an entry level bicycle. I'm sure someone here knows more about Sutton bikes but right off the bat I wouldn't invest too...

    I'm sure the 400, even though it wasn't built in the USA, would have been a great bike, there were other factors leading to my passing on it.
