I thought I'd get a good answer here, but I certainly didn't expect that much detail. Many thanks for helping me out!

'83-'84 Schwinn Bantam -- where was it made?

Hey folks! I recently came across a blue Schwinn Bantam in very good condition. I know the previous owner very well; it was almost never ridden before it was put up for storage, all but...

I probably wouldn't have the funds to go out and buy a 24-speed groupset right after getting the bike, so I predict that I'd end up using the existing "OEM" setup for quite a while. The concern...

Oldest frame that will easily accept "modern" components?

I'm still trying to navigate the waters of used bikes and entry-entry-level new bikes. When looking at older road bikes, what (approximately) is the earliest model year that would employ modern...

How much should I ask for these bikes?

So for those of you who remember, I brought home my old road bike and another one that my father had salvaged some years ago. Here's what I can glean about them:

One mid-late '80s Nishiki Rally...

Columbia serial number quandary

Along with my old Nishiki, I threw an old Columbia 10-speed from my parents' house into my car last week. Last night I found what I assumed to be the serial number stamped into the left drop-out,...

1986-88ish Nishiki Rally -- any info?

I won this bike in an elementary school raffle almost 20(!) years ago. At the time, I wondered why anyone would want a bike without a kickstand or a coaster brake. I later learned how sweet it...

How much is this worth?

I recently confirmed that my parents still have my old road bike in storage, and in great condition to boot. It's a mid-to-late-80s Nishiki Rally 10-speed. I was in fourth grade (!) when I won it...

A-1 is essentially down the street from me in Reston. I'll see what there is to see this week, and maybe I'll hit up a couple other places as time permits. My most local LBS is Performance, and...

My budget is not even close. Basically, a Trek 1000 is still about twice as much as I could really afford. Sad but true. Based on some initial research, I kind of get the feeling that low-end...

Used Bike in Northern Virginia?

Hey folks,

My first post here. I haven't owned a bike in years, but a long time ago (1987ish) I won a Nishiki 10-speed from a local bike shop. I was nine years old and couldn't actually fit on...
