Re: New guy from Arkansas
From my viewpoint, that's a good tip, wheelbender6. I have an old Roadmaster mountain bike I bought recently from a yard sale, which I was thinking of using for my 2nd build. But I think you're right about the twitchy steering, so I will stay away from it. My first build is a cruiser, and I like it just fine. My only wish right now is for a comfy seat. Not enough built in padding on my rump. Today, I trialed a doubled-over piece of 3" foam rubber tied to the Schwinn "No Stress" seat, and it's better, but looks bad.
Aw, I'm sorry. I think I just went off on a tangent.
