Im a college student who recently road a friends fixie and want to start riding a road bike. I liked how light it was and how comfortable it was to ride a bicycle after years of not riding. anyway ive been looking on craiglist and recently found a schwinn continental from the 70s for about 65 dollars. Ive been reading a bit and it seems this bike is not recommended because its heavy and and not compatible with modern upgrades.
I want to get something I can slowly piece together and eventually end up with a pretty cool fixie. what is a good started bike that I can upgrade?
this is what im looking at
right off the bat, Id want to change the handlebar tape and seat.
they guy selling it says its rideable, just replaced the tires and tubes.
