Noticed all the other tires mentioned here are made in Europe. Mine are not (Taiwan). The 49 psi minimum on the IceSpeeds seems to indicate lighter sidewalls. Still hoping other IceSpeed users ...

The design of the SRAM PC48, PC58, & PC68 chains is similar to the old Sedisport and Sedis Delta chains. They've been out of production for a while but you can sometimes find them around. If I...

I'll certainly welcome input from users of similar size & design tires like the W106 in addition to those running IceSpeeds.

On a limited budget I'd opt for a good quality early to mid '90s mtb outfitted with studded tires, full coverage fenders, cargo rack(s), and panniers. Expect to spend as much on winterizing...

PSI on 700c studded tyres--how low can you go?

Tried out my new 700 x 37/40 Suomi IceSpeeds yesterday. The tires have a 49-72 psi range marked on the sidewalls. Using the rough guide suggested by Peter White Cycles, I pumped them up to 55 psi...

IIRC, mine had a 20.5" frame which fit me perfectly at 5'10.5". I'd prolly pass if I couldn't source a correct replacement fork ahead of time.

Any pics? Had a '91 MB-5 that I overhauled a few years ago. Overall performance was way better than I expected. Sold it because I didn't like the paint scheme and graphics--and kicked myself...

Trying to match Trek Beaujolais paint for touch ups

I'm finding this dark metallic red a challenge to match. Prefer to use paint rather than nail polish. Ford Dark Toredor looks like it might be pretty close. Has anyone here found a paint color...

The SN appears to have been deliberately ground down just enough to obscure the bike's identity. You may be able to read most but not all of it--which was probably the intent. If the SN was...

Please don't repaint that frame! The color combo would make it a '81 710 or possibly an early '82 715.

Components could be mixed and matched back then, so date codes might help with confirming...

Good advice. Buying used parts when possible will lower the overall cost of your upgrades quite a bit.
I'd much rather have your 620 than a LHT.
