ok, that helps. i actually got the bike to go through all the gears last night after some heavy lubricating. Seems to spin ok, will need to disassemble the rear hub and grease it. Then, new tubes, tires, grip tape and seat it will be ready to go.

Thanks for the advice!

I just use old tires on the trainer. Keep them clean, inflated, and make sure the roller tension is correct.

I would keep the gearing option as usually that is the only way to get enough resistance unless you get a Computrainer or something expensive. Even with them you need gears unless you want to spin really high rpms.

I found a great deal on a trinaer last week, so I bought it. Figured when winter hits, I can still ride and stay in shape. Then yesterday, someone gave me a Univega Viva Sport. Needs some work, but I think I can get it road worthy fast. I am thinking of setting up the Univega for the trainer. So, a couple questions:

1) Should I run a trainer rear tire?
2) Should I keep the gearing options, or set it up as a fixed gear?
