Sometimes I enjoy working on my bikes more than riding, so I do that. There's always something I can tweak or change. Of course this can come with its own set of problems.

It's hard to find a good project bike these days

A couple years ago, Craigslist was littered with 10-20+ yr old bikes for $50-$150. Now all these same bikes are $300-$500. Anyone else notice this?

I'm not really sure if there's any gain in having the narrower tire up front. Most of the weight is in the rear, so I'd use the narrower tire there since it'll run higher pressure and roll with less...

I think OP's Judy is an 80 or 100. A modern XC fork w/ 100mm travel should work well for replacement. Not sure what stock fork was on your Marlin.

Edit: looks like your 2000 Marlin's Jett fork was...

Why would a rim say "for rim brakes only"?

I understand "for disc brakes only" or "compatible with rim brakes", but I'm not understanding what property a rim would have that would make it incompatible with disc brakes. Seems like if you've...

You could try the custom wheel builder (https://www.benscycle.com/WBRIMS/Search) at Ben's Cycle. Should be able to configure a nice set for under $350.

On my SS/FG, I run 47/21 SS and 20 FG.
On my around-town beater, I run 34/18.
On my mountain bike, I...

Three of my bikes are SS with one being SS/FG. I enjoy the simplicity of the drive train and the experience. I also have no shame in walking up hills.
