Great, thank you! I'm looking into these as I type! I should also add that cantilever brakes to accommodate some fatter tires, and at least 10 speeds would be ideal, if that helps narrow down any other possible suggestions. I realize this might take me out of what some may see as "classic territory" and well into the 80's, but that's fine for me.

Thanks again!
