the front wheel needs to be trued. It may need a new headset (it has significant play), the shifters are broken and the chain and cassette are rusted.

I'm thinking of getting dura ace 7800 shifters ($175). I think the chain, cassette and cables would cost a little over $100.

This was obviously an impulse buy and I'm now wondering if I'm spending too much on my $100 purchase.

FYI I haven't bought a bike on 15 years. My last bike was used with dura ace 7700.

Any advice is welcome


I think you made a terrible mistake and it is going to put a horrible strain on your marriage being so reckless with your money. So just to help you out and take this burden off your marriage let me come over and give you $100 for it just to get it off your hands...Thanks,mjac
