If I didn't know anything about bikes and wanted something used, I'd probably buy a bicycle from a shop too.

My problem is my bicycles are boring. Practically nobody cares about classic steel road...

I'll loosen my headset back to "non-locking" and see how the hands-free pedaling is. Now I'm curious which way is better. I welcome you to try it my way, although you'll need a plumbing wrench and a...

It's pretty easy to get a loan for a car with a cosigner. A lot harder to get a loan for a Bianchi bicycle. You got me thinking, how many Americans own their own vehicles free and clear? I can't seem...

In all fairness, years ago my local bike shop gave it to me that way. Good to know the "right way" but I'll keep doing it the "wrong way" on my bikes. Sure is an easy way to pedal without hands.

A maillard/normandy remover for french hubs? Yeah, I have one of those. Also if anyone is looking to buy one of these, Var has one of these listed on Amazon that is considerably taller.

I think I remember reading somewhere that the steerer should be smooth. I'll probably keep it the way it is, it's packed full of grease. Maybe it will cause early excessive wear, but I don't know any...

Go stainless steel cables for the longest life. I'm inclined to agree with Dabac about the housing. Shimano has served me well.

Although that Nokon housing seems to be in a league of it's own....

I'm confused. I usually tighten my headset adjuster ring tight enough to where the steerer locks forward. This is damaged? or is this only bad when it becomes this way naturally?

Nice. I bet it go's downhill faster though.

I like how simple it is to electrify a bike. Seems like all I'd need is a motor, controller and a battery? Shoot, why even pedal anymore.
