Lots of discussion in this thread and some good tips on fine-tuning cantilever brake setup, but considering those are ~25-30 year old Shimano brake pads, I guarantee you they are about as soft as...

Just Amazon (or whoever created the posting on Amazon) being dumb and converting a fractional size to decimal, not realizing they mean different things in Bike Tire World.

A 700c wheel set with a freewheel hub shouldn't be hard to find.

You mean 7 speed right? 7 speed is easy, literally any Shimano 7, 8, or 9 speed derailleur will work with it. Tourney is the lowest...

Oh boy, if you already purchased those wheels you missed a great opportunity to switch to 700c instead of 27".

The brifters are fine but for the freewheel and derailleur I think you could probably...

Trek currently lists on its website 32 new bike models available with 26" wheels. Higher end mountain bikes tend to come with 27.5 or 700c/29er wheels now, but 26" certainly hasn't been phased out.

113624, indicating it was built in the final days of 1983, I'm sure as an '84 model.

That would most likely be a 1981 model. The imported Schwinn bikes used a different serial number system. Shimano Altus LT derailleurs and a hi-tensile steel frame. Value depends on condition. As...

26 x any decimal size (as opposed to 26 x a fraction) will be a standard 559 mm "26 inch mountain bike size" tire, available pretty much anywhere bike tires are sold.
