Have you considered a 3 speed frame like a Raleigh Sports? My Robin Hood is wearing 700c28 and the fenders will fit. If I didn't want the fenders I could run tubulars or 27 x 1 1/4. There's nothing...

Thanks. The pic is a keeper.
I first had a 93/Berthet on my Holdsworth-stolen in 1975-and I never got over it.

Happy to see I am not the only one to fetishize the Stronglight 93, but I like to see it matched with Lyotard Berthet pedals, Christophe clips and straps. My companion tells me to stop oggling bikes...

I bought this Robin Hood for $22, A bargain here but nowhere else I'm aware of. The rear rim was unrecoverable and the AW-3 is on a shelf. The coating of rust and grease are for protective purposes....

Around here you might get $200+ as is! I wish I had room to take it on.
If you get it you will post progress reports of course, and does anyone ever go begging for help on this forum?

In the 1970s I was a messenger in NYC on a Legnano track bike, obviously on tubulars. I was on that bike all day every day during a time when the city was paved in broken glass and flatted maybe once...

I used to be a bike messenger in the '70s and I rode a "fix" which is now apparently called a "fixie".
At that time I sold my road bike, a Holdsworth I built up from a frameset I bought in London to...

It seems sort of a shame; it was a decent bike if not a great one. Between that and your Allez I bet you have enough parts to build a very nice bike. You'd learn a lot but not be riding for a while. ...

I have used both, now I use eSnipe. I can't remember for sure but I think I just bought a lot of 'snipe' for cheap, thus making it cost less.

The last time I added Drillium (to a Stronglight chainring, I think) it was in about 1974-5, when it seemed popular. Time for a revival if it hasn't already happened.
