Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You'll probably get more help from the Classic & Vintage forum on here. Most people on Roadbikes don't ride $200 bikes and don't know how to help you with them. The C&V people are very friendly to people who are using vintage steelies. I also have such a bike, but know nothing about the two you have posted. Good luck.
