Its fun going to cycle shops as I always get positive comments on the bike!
Will have another think about new tires for the short term.
Also I shall keep an eye out for wheels. Thing is, I already talked about this with someone. I thnk my bike would look a bit weird with very small tires on the size wheels it has.... Ideally I would like a different set of wheels, and I'd still be interested to know if anyone has managed to ift the biggest wheels possible in the forks with brakes that reach the rim...if not, I might have to be a conoisseur...
If anyone knows anyone or any website that does custom bike mods/conversions I would be interested to gain some knowledge/inspiration for my slow resotration/customisation. Will surely measure up and research parts i want.
I am just starting my bike learnings, need a crash course on bike tech really (terminologies are currently confusing me!); have just found this forum so will be around..
...and post pics as I go....
