    1991 Schwinn High Plains

    Never restored a bike. Considering this. With maybe a 1x advent-x and bring up to date a smidge. Looking for inspiration and advice, and what ill need to overhaul this thing. It was my dads, id like to make it kind of a flat bar gravel bike / easy trails mtb. Any advice and help would be most appreciated. Because I dont know anything about fixing these. Hiw do I determine what bottom bracket and headset I need in order to replace them? What about a 1x ring to replace the current front chainrings, how do you know what is compatible? Thanks in advance, I am looking forward to working on this.

    I have a 91 High Plains that is my about town bike (mine was built up from a frame and spare parts)

    It seems like the crankset uses a 110bcd. But I would measure to double check. If it is a 110bcd you just need a 110bcd narrow wide chainring.

    The bb is a standard 68mm bb. You can measure the spindle length from the BB you have in there.
