    [IMG] Peugeot PX60 - as of December 28th 2013 by Dawes-man, on Flickr[/IMG]

    With my first ever touring holiday starting tomorrow - 300kms over 5 days along the coast on the Inner Sea of Japan from Yamamguchi, via Hiroshima to Okayama - I got the Peugeot out 2 weeks ago in order to ride it every day and give it a thorough going over. The main changes are wider mudguards, a wider range front derailleur, wider and more parallel handlebars and a shorter stem. Also, a few months ago, as a result of reading about such conversions here on C&V, I moved the DT Retrofriction levers to an old pair of Shimano pods on the ends of the bars making for very easy gear-changing. The result of all these changes is a beautifully smooth and comfortable ride.

    As well as fitting the Bluemels Lightweight guards I've tapped out the mudguard eyelets on the Simplex dropouts at the rear to 6mm to match the front end eyelets in the Tange forks, as well as tapping the fastening holes in the Blackburn rack - this is in response to losing a Blumels butterfly nut on a 7 hour ride back in the summer. I reckon with the 2 threaded holes and a good spring-washer the bolts are less likely to back out. The bolts are 4mm Allen bolts.

    As I'm flying to Yamaguchi from Tokyo with my bike I bought a very nice flight bag, made by Ostrich - their OS-500 model. It retails here for around $150 and is very well made. However, it's only 'just' big enough for this 59cm frame, with the saddle and seat post removed, so probably wouldn't suit anyone with anything bigger. A problem, of course, is what to do with the bag when I get there. The bag already folds into a 44cm X 80cm 'slab' and I have found that it will fold once more over the rear rack. Another alternative would be to send it on to Okayama from Yamaguchi and pick it up when I arrive 5 days later.

    Anyway, this is the bag:

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, and around 300kms of such scenery, is the reason I've been dreaming of doing this ride for the last 10 years or so:

    Looks cool!

    I love those Mirrycle mirrors for the non-aero levers. It puts the mirror in just the right place for a glance over.

    I've tried the bar end mirrors, the clip on mirrors and the clamp on mirrors. The non-aero is the best. The stretchy clamp Mirrycle is OK clamped just under the brake levers, but it's a little low to be perfect.

    1985 Miyata Six Ten



    This is my nearly finished Six Ten purchased this past fall. After the photo was taken I stumbled across a 1/2 off sale on Brooks bar tape (honey, to match the saddle). The pic is taken inside because it's been below zero here in Minnesota. Can't wait for spring. By then I'll have a pair of 1 1/4 Paselas on it (presently it's still sporting the stock tires and tubes, with maybe a few hundred miles of wear).

    This is my 1978 Robert Ducheron touring bike, a french classic randonneur.
    The front low rider rack was built by Alex Singer but is not detachable.
    The Luxor taillight is not period correct but fits nicely, so I keep it

    Very handsome bike! 650b tire size I assume. If the front rack is not detachable, how and where is it attached? Would love to see more close-ups.

    That is exceptional!

    What size is it? Although the pump changes things- it looks like the space inside the "triangle" is small- or that's a REALLY big water bottle.

    It's coming along great!

    Hoods, Racks and Bottle Cages!!!

    I can't hardly wait for spring as well. I've scored the touring bike bounty over the holidays- I'll get nice pix as soon as everything is cleaned up and put together.

    Thanks, GB. I have the hoods on (Cane Creek light brown). Not entirely satisfied with the fit, as the base of the hoods don't come all the way down to the bars, but probably the best I'll be able to do. I'm going to put the (black) Blackburn rear rack that it came with back on and will probably hunt for a black Blackburn FL-1 for the front. The bottle cages I'm looking at are the King Cage Iris at Rivbike.

    This bike is sharp! That's the direction I'm going to go with my (for now) kind of fugly Fuji.

    I had almost the same group in a double on an old Schwinn Prelude I owned. I loved those barcon shifters. Is that a Suntour 4050 derailleur?

    I haven't posted this here yet. For your consideration My 1983 Univega Gran Turismo. Got it in pretty rough shape for a song. I completely refurbished the bike but I'm going to change the drivetrain to indexing and lower the gearing. I've got some clamp on Shimano DT shifters, an indexed long cage derailleur, and a 48-38-28 Takagi Tourney crankset that will be installed. Hope you like it.

    Yes, 4050, almost unused. This bike was stored for a long time before I got it. Needs the usual cables and maintenance, but it's in almost new shape. 40 spoke rear wheel and spoke holders.

    What levers are on your bike?

    Velo Orange has hoods for the 204 style levers.
