comment Does the BB axle (spindle) lengths 1:1 compare for square taper and octalink?
There can be a difference between cranks even of the same type of interface. Place a straight edge across the inside of the smallest gear and measure to the edge of the hole. Do this to both cranks, the difference in length, be it shorter or longer is your new spindle length requirement..

comment My bike brakes are lethal, help!
I clean the rims when installing new pads or if I suspect road (oil, asphalt sealer, paint etc. ) contamination. I have seen old pads leave streaks of rubber residue on the rims ,especially on old steel rims. In these cases it does make a difference.

For those without the right tool, a Dremel with a cutting wheel works very well.

comment proper tube size for bicycle tire
If I couldn't find a wide 700c I would use the narrowest 29er tube available. Most likely a 29x1.75( approx. 44mm).

With cassette removed can you tell if the freehub is loose on the wheel or is the axle loose where it goes through the freehub?

comment Hybrid bike stolen, trying to weigh factors for how to replace
I would add, if you have a LBS in your area that you are comfortable with ask what they might charge to give the bike a quick once over. I agree with all the comments used is by far the best value.
