I am at last getting round to sorting out the mixte I picked up for my other half a couple of years ago. Yeah, I know - slack. Other than changing tyres I've not really done much to my previous bikes so please bear with me, my lack of knowledge and dumb ass questions!
I have now, successfully it seems, replaced the chain which is a first for me
Now I've changed the innertubes to some that the valves are still attached and pumped the tyres up I've found that, unsurprisingly, the tyres are knackered.
So after all that waffle - the point of the post!
I'd like to replace the wheels as they appear to be steel and heavy. Are these any good for the money? http://www.decathlon.co.uk/700c-freewhe ... 05015.html
and http://www.decathlon.co.uk/front-wheel- ... 05017.html
or is there something else I should be looking for. The bike has a 5 speed freewheel.
She really wants cream delta cruisers on the bike and they are 35mm - how do I figure out if they will fit the frame without buying them? I think they will fit the frame OK, but I'm not sure about the brake clearance - can this be adjusted?
Here's some pics of the bike in case it helps!
Thanks for reading.
