Bicycle frame updating dating a native american women
The quill stem (handlebar mount) looks like it is mounted pretty low.
These simple changes would not cost much, would keep the bike mostly original and make for a better ride.I was wondering if anyone knows the feasibility of updating an older road bike for more casual use.I was thinking about a little wider tire and maybe a straight typ handle bar and click shifters. You will probably be limited in what you can do because so much has changed in frame geometry.You might also find that by re-wrapping the bars it will be more comfortable too.I would change the stem or get a stem extender to get the bars level with the seat and put some new tires and ride it before I started changing a bunch of parts.
