    friday i got one of those in a trade. its in really bad condition, so i'm gonna convert it for a beater.

    if its in good shape, however, keep it geared.

    I would consider converting it if that's what you want. Just keep all the gears,etc so you can build it back up that way when you are sick of SS/FG.

    If everything is functional, I say keep it as is and overhaul/restore.

    I love 80s Fuji Team rode bikes. My Fuji Tiara is a lower model, but I love riding it every time. What size did you buy?

    not sure, either 52 or 54 cm.

    im a new at bike mechanics and i suck terribly.

    the fds on the team fuji and my jamis ventura were not shifting so i adjusted the cable tension and it played a little with the limit screws and they shifted fine...on the workstand.

    i went to ride them today and apparently accomplished nothing...off to the bike mechanics forum

    If the derailleur cables are super old, just replace them for a couple of dollars at your LBS. Also, if the downtube shifters are in friction mode, make sure they're tight.

    didnt really pay attention to it.

    A bike like that doesn't deserve a conversion to ss IMO... unless you keep the orig. components and bring it back to its former glory at some point
