Some advice and a lot of first-hand anecdotes and observations from someone who accidentally had a career in the bike business.

Check out that chainring! It looks like a massive gear until you examine the rear cog. Then the gearing looks downright reasonable. This bike was waiting for the Madison, CT Fourth of July parade a few years ago. It may have been one of the many that Jim Spillane pulled out of his barn, but I don't think all the vintage bikes we saw that day came from there. It's amazing what people have tucked away in sheds, barns and basements.
