That link above has some of the weirdest lacing I've ever seen.

Put your holes higher than the rails, or lace after it's installed on the seatpost, lace normally and you'll be good.

While both look good, I bet white would look amazing and really step up the 80's style.

The Noodle has some sweep to the tops. I think Randonneur shape bars have a more significant sweep.

I believe that sweep is more comfortable than straight because it aligns with the joints in...

I love the Noodle, mine is either a 46 or 48 cm so wide, really really wide. I've ridden it on my '92 Bianchi and it makes for a very stable, planted feel when bombing down hills and on rough...

I think black or dark anno rims and tan-walls are an excellent combo, particularly if the brake track is worn through the anno and bare alu. The contrast makes both the rims and tires really pop. ...

That Colnago with the tricolore tires looks amazing! Just the right amount of flair, if the frame were any other colour it wouldn't work.

Rules? There are no rules.

I dunno, the road is the most likely place but I've ridden them on a track, which I do enjoy. I assume a track bike would be better on the track, I just haven't tried yet.

He's in for a world of hurt if/when the basket clamps on the handlebar slip and the basket jams into the front tire.

I've owned somewhere around a half dozen sets of non-TG or PT Paselas. I like 'em for what they are. Affordable tires that feel fine and look right.

Never had a problem with flats or sidewalls....
