go to nashbar
Next subject is wheels. Mine are alright but, pretty much only for visual purposes, I want them black. Where might some wheels for cheap, in black, that aren't too heavy or fragile?
pricepoint has a disc wheelset from shimano for about 90 bucks
Also, disk brakes. I know my fork isn't compatible with them but I want to run 'em in the rear. Again, cheap is good. Not sure if I'm gonna be able to swing this one though.
waste of money, if not in the front don't get the rear, you get between 75-85% of your braking power from the front brake. V-brakes can easily lock up a rear wheel
How much am I looking at if I want to rebuild the hubs and such? Those, too, are original and starting to show it. It's probably just out of alignment but I figure a general idea can't hurt much

Yeah, that went a bit beyond tires...
i have to type a message dso here it is
