Hey everyone (first post!),
To keep it short, I bought a 2000 Raleigh M-80 off of craigslist for $100. I don't know if I scored a good deal, but so far, I am in love with this bike!! The frame is amazing, it was built well, very light for $100 (it's even lighter than my friend's steel road bike). I mainly use this bike to commute to my classes on campus. I am a complete newbie in the bike world (I am a drummer at heart with a side of rock climbing) so I would greatly appreciate ya'lls help. I want to modify my bike to be a commuter. I guess what I'm asking are things I can buy or do to make my bike lighter and ride better/smoother. I have a minimal budget ~$300-400ish but I would like to hear all the options available for my bike. I'd rather spend that much to improve the ride quality/speed/looks of my bike than spending equally as much (or more!!) for a parking spot on campus plus the gas.
Hopefully this picture will work. If not, I'll try posting some pictures later
