For me, it's not so much "lost my nerve", as "lost my verve" when it comes to climbing. Used to hammer my brains out whenever the road went up, to the extent that I got a bit of a reputation: "We...

I'm running a "flag" triple on a 113mm Shimano UNxx bb and the chain line is just fine. Nice low "Q" too.

PX10's came with a couple different styles of lugs over the years. The plain lugs, just like those on the PR10 in the picture, came on the scene in the early-mid 70's IIRC. Prior to that PX10s had...

I'd be surprised if the wheelbase on that Rigi measured more than 37". A 39" wheelbase is pretty pedestrian, especially in a smaller frame like that. For comparison, my 63cm Eisentraut Rainbow is...
