I used a take-a-look mirror for a while, but realized that I didn't like the blind spot that it caused to my peripheral vision. I switched to a bar end mirror and like it much better.

Riding SS appeals to me but riding FG does not. I have to stand up some during my multi-geared bike rides to relieve my caboose pain, if only for a moment.

If you do decide to make changes to it, don't tear it down until you have the new parts in hand. The pandemic has affected even the availability of bike parts.

I have a Roll low entry 21 speed. I routinely cruise around my neighborhood at 11-12 mph on it. I have no hills here. I am currently shopping for something a bit nimbler and faster.

The Wabi Urban Thunder bike has choices of 44/18 gearing for urban riding and 46/18 gearing for rural riding, if that is useful. It is certainly individually subjective.

Horizontal. The rims seem pretty true, so I may be able to re-use them. I was hoping that I could put some wider tires on it. It has the really narrow "English Racer" tires currently.

I like the simplicity of most of these bikes. I ride a Specialized Roll Sport with 21 gears and, with no hills in my area, end up only using 3-4 of them. The bike is over-equipped for my purposes.
