    I already have that, Gary! And more horsepower, even less horse would be impossible for me!

    With all you guys talking about HR's and HR monitors, how about that fancy Garmin GPS/Monitor??

    I want to subtract 20 years. And if Gary's cycle-lass has a sister (even an aunt), that'd be fine, too. And a peaceful Xmas for Berts, and Dnvr ride a century, PastorBob and his wife have another child (!), SeaFoam's knee come back stronger than ever by Saturday, Stapfam start his own winery, DeeGee finally find (and buy) the Ultimate Bike, etc. etc.

    Long cycling pants. I've already bookmarked J-G to forward, when asked for my list. I'll probably think of some other winter riding gear.

    3. An Extreme Makeover for my '71 Varsity.

    PB: You've just come up with a grand idea! Why the folks here at BF 50+ could quite easily do a TV show on bicycle extreme makeovers. Just think, we'd go into the garages, sheds, and basements of people all over the land, and help them revive their neglected, dusty, rusty old rides! Why, we could take a Schwinn Varsity, help it lose 10 lbs or so, put on new 20 spoke wheels, and index shifting, and carbon handlebars, and a carbon seat post, and dual pivot brakes, and.... Or, we could go with a more New England based theme and call it This Old Bike. I'm starting to get excited about the possibilities. OK, I now know what I want for Christmas - a meeting with a few Hollywood producer types to pitch this idea, and then a meeting with several bike component manufactures to seek sponsorships! Yeah, that's the ticket - a new career in TV, doing makeovers on bicycles.

    I think I'll have my person call yours and set up a meeting!

    Some of those new Campy skeleton brakes. My almost 20 year old Shimano 105s still work just fine but a little bling would be nice.

    Careful Tonto, you forget that vintage electro forged Schwinns come with unique (odd-ball) sized components, i.e. stems, seatpost, bars, etc. The Makeover I have planned will be accomplished with exclussively "Dump Find" and traded parts. My hope is to spend less than $20 (cables and bearings if needed). I have just about everything I need, including a brand new set of tires and tubes I found this week. Pictured below is the "before" shot, taken just after I brought it home from the dump this past March. I will start the week after Christmas (I stay pretty busy until then ).

    Got'cha. You're talking about New Design on a Dime. BTW, my first "ten speed" was a Varsity and I rode that thing to death. I then made the jump to the Continential and felt I was quite a hot shot. Later moved to the LeMan's, eventually to a Paramount. I've always had a soft spot for Schwinns.
