I have also used both the Shimano Inter 7 and the SA-XRF-5. I like the Inter 7. I don't like how the SA pull-chain shift mechanism sticks out from the hub axle where it can get banged up. I have two...

Very nice mixte. Looks French to me. I saw a Singer mixte a few years back with a lot of the same detail including the same triple downtime design.

Congrats.

I used Kenda K35 tires on Eroica with no issues. I found them good on gravel and dirt and they were fast on pavement. I had mine pumped up to about 90 psi for the ride. The only drawbacks are they...

Nice build. I love the color.

What is that clamped to the downtube above the front fender?

I built-up a Fuji S-12-S for my wife last year with a Nexus 7 IGH, and I've got a Motobecane Le...

I signed up for the short route. Planning to ride either my '62 Peugeot UO8 or my '72 PX-10. I probably won't wear wool either.

Very nice looking bike. I like the choice of components. Still retains the vintage look. I don't think you need 27" wheels. My Grand Jubile is stock except for the wheels which are 700c sew-ups.

Nice bike indeed!

I would only replace the RD with a Huret and the Araya rim with a Weinmann, clean and lube all the bearings, replace cables and brake pads and ride it.

Oh, one last thing,...
