    Just picked up this Cannondale SH400 yesterday. Haven't done anything to it. Not sure where to start.

    Rides fine, probably needs a gear adjustment, but that seems to be about it. Though I am sure a full tune-up and cleaning wouldn't hurt.

    Yes I had to make a little cable stop up to go into the old cable guide in the top tube.
    still waiting on a couple of bits to arrive, i suspect later this week they will all turn up.

    I don't know if there's anything special about the cranks on these bikes. If it's like mine, it has the 42/34/24 chainrings.
    yes, on closer inspection it is nothing special, at the original quick glance it looks like the chainrings were able to come away from the spider but they are definitely riveted on for life.

    liking that blue on white marble colour scheme, though the scratch on the front fork sticks out a bit, is the frame big enough for you?

    Yes I am. It is super late 80s early 90s blue splatterish thing going on.

    Height wise yes. At least going by what I've read. If I stand over the crossbar I can lift the bike just about an inch off the ground. I might need to get either flat handlebars or maybe turn these forwards so they extend a little bit further out, but otherwise it is comfortable.

    I was thinking of trying to fix the spots here and there, it might look patchy when I am done, but better than rust and aluminum showing through.

    Love that seat you have on it, could you please provide some details about how good or not, it is for your riding.
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    Has been comfortable so far. It is a Bontrager comfort saddle i believe. I have only rode the bike twice and about a mile or so max each time so I can't tell you how it fares on longer rides. So far so good though.

    you could always get an adjustable stem down the track if you like.

    8 speed cassette with alivio triggers,







    All coming in under 12Kg is a reasonably light steel framed flat bar. in fact lighter than my Ally giant CRX and about on a par with my steel framed racer.

    Yea, but I don't know how much money I really want to put into this bike. This is to see if I stick with it, and if I enjoy riding around here. It is a bit hectic in these streets of LA.

    Hope you are enjoying the vintage LX...

    My friend was in need of a decent bike and my BRC fit the bill and this got him off the bike shaped object that has been frustrating him ever since he bought it... I met up with him the other day and he has been hitting the road and trail with wanton abandon and he just loves the bike. I fitted it out with 700:38 cross tyres to improve his off road experience and let the bike handle our battered up roads.

    I have been making due with this pile of spare parts...



    Since my commute often looks like this it works rather well...

    IMG_1749.jpgThis is my newly purchased 1997 720 Trek Multitrack, ladies model. bought it from the original owner who hardly ever road it. other than scratches from putting it on car racks, it was in great shape. i had to replace the original gumwall tires as they were brittle. Even the little grey plastic parts on the altus canti brakes are perfect!

    Hi guys! I forgot about this thread until I dug the bikes of mine in it out of storage, had too many hairbrain builds on the go at once, got clear of some so ?
    Here are the builds in the beginning
    b 173.jpgb 174.jpgkkll 003.jpgm 003.jpg

    The Giant is now flat bar and 3 x 7 Black LX and does not need much except time which like everyone I am short on.

    The Trek is pretty much together parts wise and should fly together when I get some of that precious time stuff.

    I want to get the Giant going first to check frame size etc then I am thinking of giving it the parts off of my 2013 Jamis Commuter 3 with a 7spd Nexus IGH.
    I have rode it now for 18 months as a commuter and find the frame just too stiff, I will try the parts on the Giant and maybe purchase a Soma Saga later on.

    Anyway, without further ado . . . . . The Zombie he awakes!
    Where are the Bikeaholic meetings? . . . . . I need help!? I just don't think I can do this alone.

    Behold the humble bicycle . . .the oldest form of mechanical transport for the individual person.
    It will be the last too.

    Re-Cycle that Bicycle. Fix it, Ride it, Give it away.

    Not sure what year this is, but based on the shifters and breaks it seems to be mid 90's. Couldn't find much if anything about it online in English.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but that bike is not from the mid 90s. internal headsets, formed downtubes, stubby barends, and mini vs did not exis in the mid 90s. Plus the graphic design is post 90s. A quick google search turns up the same model for sale at clearance in spain. if anything, its from the mid 2000s on i would guess.

    A little update, I have finished a bomb around type bike that I have procrastinated over for an age,

    bgh 048.jpgbgh 050.jpg

    I will get to the Giant and possibly the Trek in the new year.
