    Everything old is new again

    I think Rivendell started it. But it seems to have taken on a life of it's own.
    You are seeing new bikes, sometimes very expensive bikes, that look as much
    like old school bikes as they can.

    Parts were a problem. but that problem seems to be going away.



    Renee Herse cranks...

    This isn't what I did. But I do like the looks.

    I want to go on a tweed ride. Any idea where you find tweed?

    Tweed is too hot and itchy. I suggest a hair shirt.

    I am still awaiting the return of Shimano's DynaDrive. Not necessarily a good thing, but it is one of the few bad-ideas-gone-into-some-what-production that I still deal with on a regular basis due to my infatuation with 1st-gen Deore.

    The vintage takeover has begun. We will rule the world.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Wish that bike had those shiny silver cranks, but otherwise... whew, very beautiful. What is it? I can't see the name, and I fail all "name this bike" games.

    Tweed is for poseurs, Real C&V'ers wear wool!

    There's a fellow in the Midlands that wants to talk to you about that:

    The threads are standard pedal threads.
