    Actually, it shifts reasonably well, but not as accurately as a good Suntour. There seems to be a particular upshift or two which overshift and need to be tweaked. On my last ride when the powerlink broke I had to shorten the chain by two links. That lowered the jockey pulley and the shifting seemed worse. I have since put those links back in but haven't had a chance to re-test it.

    Anyway, how else could I run a Nuovo Record RD with a 34T freewheel!

    Funny that - I had more A1 platform VWs than I could count on one hand. Autocrossed a few Scirocco's for awhile - each with the 1.8L 16V engine (hence my username), also Quaife, Megasquirt, etc. Will edit this soon to include a pic of me and my bikes.

    Any problem can be solved with the proper application of force, heat, chemicals, or money.

    Nice kids, frogbutter and rubberlegs. I love it when our kids get into it. My 24 year old suddenly became a serious cyclist, but she's on the left coast, so we can't ride together.

    Holy S**T Northbend. Great picture. Are those maple leaves? Or the rare and elusive Panama Red leaves?
    Wonderful shot.

    Northbend, another great composition! I think you should consider publishing a photo book of Rides with Northbend. You have a great eye.

    This is my bicycle, daily driver/rider, and best friend. To me it looks like a 70's era Ten Speed. I removed the front derailleur and tuned the rear for the middle three cogs on the freewheel, turning it into a nifty Three Speed. I also removed the rear brake, and chopped the handlebars short and flipped 'em upside down to give them the bullhorn look.

    I've put about 1500 miles on it this year. I've done quite a bit of research trying to find out what exact brand or year it is, so I made this short video going through parts it came with when I got it (in hopes that someone here might be able to recognize it). The only parts I've changed are the Seat, Handlebar tape, and the wheels/tires/tubes. Also, painted it (poorly)

    Flexy. The calipers need to be run wide to avoid rub. Especially when grinding up a hill.

    NB, always enjoying your pics! I got the feeling you're a master of the self-timer. Do you always bring a mini tripod, or one of those octopus-like tripods?

    Is it rude of me not to post my own pic while checking out everyone else's?

    Nope; just use whatever is lying around. Set the camera on the ground, a rock, my helmet or in the case of the Panama Red photo, zip tied to a tree branch.

    I like the photo you posted. Was that from L'Eroica? Who are the other BF'rs in the photo? Just curious.

    Your creativity inspires me to get a proper camera instead of that camera-phone with no self-timer whatsoever.

    That pic was at the Retro Tour of Flanders, the best day on two wheels I ever experienced. I'm the tired bloke on the right, next to Elev12k, ReynoldsSteel and Woutervanwijk (from r-l), all equal bf-ers. Though some are more equal than others

    Missing: Italuminium. I had my bike tuned and polished, had a group of friends and a car, but disaster struck. Still not too happy to have missed it
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.
