Honestly, I can't imagine somebody whose used to riding wit a group of friends at 18mph being happy riding that Schwinn Twinn. I'd seriously question the wisdom of spending shop prices to overhaul that bike.
The Atom hub brake is pretty simple. Unless your brake shoes are completely worn there's not much you can do to service it. My wife and I rode a Schwinn Twinn, with hub brake, for about 7 or 8 years and never wore out the shoes on ours.
I don't know if youll be able to keep up with your friends but, unless you make your wife really mad, I can guarantee that you'll always have somebody to talk with as you ride.
