I plan on greasing bearings and maybe replacing the housings/cables based on condition. Tires are toast though. I'd ride 10mph around the neighborhood max. 27"x1 1/4". Before I bought some, wanted to see if anybody had an old pair in the back of their closet stinking up the place.

I'm currently planning on heading west from 95th & Renner area, and see where it takes me (Desoto maybe?). Contemplating something south off Metcalf too. Tried to ride a road bike on the asphalt trails, and it was kind of a mess. Felt like I had to slow down a whole lot going around corners, and felt too fast coming up on people.
