Then there's the whole dilemma/quest: which saddle is the "right" saddle. But +1 on "there's no way you have to spend $160 for a Brooks saddle." I've never spent that much on one, and have at least...

Sorry about that; for complicated reasons of security, DropBox disabled the link (and didn't tell me about it when I retrieved it to post). Should work now.

Very nice, and thanks, but they don't appear to be downloadable; or at least the Suntour Cyclone page wasn't.

Tange Falcon FL250 is an alloy headset with cartridge bearings. Very nice looking, and I think the same stack as the taller Levin (I think there are a couple versions of the Levin). I don't know if...

Thanks for the kind offer, Neal. I doubt that it was a EA1/597 mm bike, since that would require a brake reach of over 73 mm. Of course, it would have been possible to install such rims using the...

As a matter of interest, I typically weigh frames that come my way, with all components removed, except for the pressed-in races of the headset in head tube and fork crown. A frame I had, similar to...

Definitely 1984. Several models below the Pro had Gipiemme dropouts then, and it appears to have recessed nut brakes. The fork crown is, if memory serves, a Haden lugless type. At this time, Raleigh...

The 1984 model was the same, I think, including the over-the-BB cable guides. I have such a frame, acquired on the cheap because it had a fractured dropout. I have the original sales receipt from...

Milremo plastic ones come in nice, bright colors; I have a few. I usually use the black Velox rubber ones, because they're resilient. Whoops, zombie thread . . .

Dunno, but that's probably a good guess, as long as you are content that the first digit is a zero. You might do what rccardr suggests, and pull the fork; however, the fork I have doesn't have a...

I think that the first post's rear dropouts are Campagnolo "Portacatena" type. I may have this wrong, but I think they came out in 1978 -- as James Thurber said, "You could look it up."

If changing the stem, I would look at the Nitto Dirt Drop. Has a fairly long quill, so can put the bars higher, and comes in either 80 or 100 mm effective reach. I rode a too-small-for me frame for...

WTB Older-style (50s-60s) Simplex rear dropout, drive side

I know this is a long shot I bought a nice 1950s English frame that has a dodgy-looking brazed rear dropout repair. Id like to get it properly fixed with a new dropout. The Simplex dropout Im...

Not mine (I wish! but too small a frame for me) but I came across this image somewhere, an order sheet for a Hetchins in 1963. Sorry it's not a receipt -- should I take it down?

I have an AW on a bike with 120 mm OLD and 4-mm-wide dropouts. I bought a 6-1/2" long axle for it, and it's just right. You might get away with 6-1/4", but it might not be so easy to see the...

It's Thomas Hardy, who besides turning to (excellent) poetry in later life, became a pretty avid cyclist. Put up lots of miles.
