Wow! What a gem. The cranks, the fork, the bag, the fenders and the light on the back of the rear fender. I hope to find something like that for myself.

I get that, but since this bit of panto is on the hubs I think the only real worry will be keeping the pantos clean. Other than that, they shouldn't suffer much in the way of wear and tear.

They'll really lighten up the bike a bit - and I've gotten spoiled with my recent rides on my other recently-acquired tubular wheelset.

Cool curved Campy gear levers from shnibop:





Considering some of the rare/interesting things I've had the good luck to acquire over the years I find it hard to believe it took this long to find a pair of these! Thanks, Alex

Temple grad here as well. Concur completely. Last time I was there I made the GF eat a Geno's and a Pat's in the same day. (several hours apart) She likes Pat's. As if.

I sold a bike to Louis who used to work at Geno's. His bike was his transportation and it was stolen. (no, really, in Philly? nu uh!) He didn't have the money so he got the money from the fellow down the street. 25 percent. I sold him a Raleigh at a good discount. Later I helped him and his (really hot) wife move an air conditioner from the store to his apartment on Vine St. And I was treated like a VIP at Geno's. Like I was Sinatra.

Different sort of bike. Monument Valley.

Hot girl, butt-ugly boots

Proof that girls can pretty much get away with anything fashion-wise - even when it's not!

A new job has keep me away from the forum lately, but I've still been riding. The fall colors are really starting to pop!


Lazy road ride yesterday before the rain moved in:


View from the top of the tower at Mohonk Mountain House, looking west at the Catskills. This was the highlight of the 54 mile mountain bike ride I did from my house. VERY tired at the end of the day.



The lake at the Mountain House:





Spring Farm, looking at the Catskills:

I have always thought these were defective... must have thrown away dozens of sets.

Just added the "Mohonk Mountain House" to my must-visit list. That place looks absolutely incredible!!

That's gotta be a retired quarry, right? Beautiful
