Good point on the offset holes. I seem to recall alternating angling of the holes if not so much spacing on the rim, so that's probably not such a great idea. I've been beating a pair of Mavic Cosmos...

Even with just a 6-pack you think it'd be too dodgy? I'm guessing it'd definitely be so with a 12 pack, but might be okay on the way *TO* a party... I'm riding a 1971 Schwinn Super Sport with Nitto...

Campy Protons for $100, Can't find any specs

I'm thinking about buying some used Campy Protons for $100. I'm trying to figure out what the rim width is. I probably want to run ~40mm tires and if the rims are 17mm wide or less, that's...

So I ended up going with the 3-speed idea, they make good guest bikes and luckily both have aluminum rims as well as fenders. One is an old austrian made Sears with a ~5 year old locally...

Yeah, I think it's 81-83 based on these catalogs. Does anyone know about Peugeot/Rigisa's component changes through the years? The owner thinks the rims are aluminum.

I'm not sure, but I think the tires are made in England...The bike is made in France (at least that's what the ad says and logic would dictate).

So, at veloswap, how cheap can I get a new....disc brake single speed? Or cargo bike? What kind of deals have been seen there? What kind of vendors are there? Individuals? Framebuilders? Companies?

I've had them be a real pain to adjust when I had an older Fuji touring. Calipers were easier and more reliable, I thought. New ones are probably better, though.
