    The seatpost was cheap ($15) at the LBS to get it up and running. The stem was pulled out of my local co-op and work well for CX use.

    That's a great looking Nishiki. I noticed it right away because it's one of the few I've seen with the same decals as my Prestige.

    Any idea on the year? I bought it at the local co-op so there was no history with it.

    I started a thread about mine and, thanks to T-mar, concluded it's an '85. I would imagine your's is similar but if any of your components are original you could probably date those. My brakes and stem had '85 stamped on them.

    I think the brakes are original but that was all that was on it when I bought it. Maybe I'll start a thread with the sn#. I found a NOS superb RD locally that I may pick up for it to match the topmount shifter (with the trimming feature).

    Anyone know a good source for front and rear racks? I've been to rivendell but I just don't have much to drop right now.

    Wallingford Bicycle has Jandd racks. They're not as expensive but they look to be pretty good. I thought they came in silver too, but I don't see that on there.

    Mint 1972ish Falcon Olympic. It gathered dust in someones basement for 30+ years before it came to me.


    PB fenders, more comfy seat, rack and panniers for touring.

    Okay, I confess, this is neither a photo of me nor my bike.

    However these three Englishmen cycled around the world on their quite modern looking touring bikes from 1897 to 1899. Notice the rear luggage racks, sensibly wide tires, plenty of custom bags, and the nice relaxed geometry of the bikes. Our concept of properly paved roads did not exist, at best one would find cobblestones and at worst they would struggle to drag their bikes through roads which had become mud to above the ankles. The bikes often crossed over rough fields and they encountered the same punctures to their pneumatic tires we all still dread. Nevertheless, the bikes held up just fine. And the riders returned to London healthy - although a bit disappointed there were no crowds waiting to greet them.

    That's a great photo and I love the bikes Looks to me like they geared their bicycles pretty low for the trip which makes sense really.

    Cool. Did they keep a journal of any kind? It'd be an interesting read...

    Ok, I have to post an updated photo of my Univega since it's changed a bit since the first picture. Actually, it's changed since this photo too. The brass bell has been replaced with aluminum, the bar tape is now shellaced cloth, and it has Suntour derailleurs back on it (Thanks Noah Scape!)

    My word that's really classic What mudguards are those that you're using on your bike?

    Thanks. They are 43mm Honjo fenders I bought from Velo Orange. Pain to install, but I like them.

    Nice Schwinn Mazdaspeed!

    Leigh30, if you still have the front and read cable stops from your centerpull brakes, I would love to buy them. I think I read above that you were going to cantilever.

    Kinda vintage, late 80's with mostly XT, gipiemme cranks, Sachs ergo shifters and self energizing rear brake. It's a Marinoni.

    The bike originally had Dia Compe CANTIS. I have changed them up for original Shimano XT CANTIS, but used the rest of the original hardware, including the cable stops...
    N-1 is my long-term goal

    Here's mine- a 1989 [I think] Dawes Galaxy with Rear rack, Brooks B-17, Weinmann Centerpull brakes, 531 Frame and forks, and mudguards for the winter.

    Pics are HERE

    Love the Dawes! It's cool when road-ish bikes have mud on the tires.

    You can get these old Jim Blackburns on eBay for around $20 plus shipping. I just picked up a couple at a bike swap for $10 each. There's a matching front rack. I have two of those. They're very sturdy and they polish up real nice with steel wool. I think the one in the picture is the one I bought in the late seventies for my Peugeot.
