I've taken responsibility for it. I have admitted I failed them.

I didn't sell them anything, they helped me raise money for a project that isn't done yet. They will get what I'veromised them.

Is there anyone here from Coral Springs, FL?

I need someone in Coral Springs to do me a favor and pickup and ship a C&V bicycle for me. In exchange, I will reimburse you all expenses, plus I'll send you a vintage parts goodie bag.

ID this Bianchi

Popped up for a fair price on local CL, and it's my size, so I drove over after work. All the decals have been removed. Original Celeste paint, but it needs work. I can't figure out what model it is....

This may seem counter productive, but let me explain.

I collect dropouts, and many of the ones I'd like to display are seemingly unavailable or prohibitively expensive to find as JUST the...

Stock 1984 Trek 830 ATB in "rare" teal

I have a 1984 Trek 830. Fully lugged, lugged fork, Reynolds 501 ATB tubing, bullmoose bars, all that jazz. All stock, except tires and cable housing. Weirdly, it's teal and I've never seen it in...

Help: ID this Campagnolo dropout

So I was working on research for my dropouts when I stumbled upon this campagnolo variation. Only appears to be used on 1991-1992 framesets, but I can't find it in any of the campy catalogs, or...
