I'm glad the paint is still there! I loved my DX2000 from the moment I picked it up in an NYC basement thrift stop. Rode much more nicely than its spec. Digging what you've done with it; the black...

WRK101's favorite football team might be Green Bay, if I had to guess from the careful packing of this nifty vintage raleigh frame.

A goood tourer will also have steering that gets responsive and predictable under load. My Alyeska is like that. The rake and trail of the fork have that special magic.

Nothing I have is stock.

Except my wife's road bike and my youngest's vintage purple Fuji MTB.
But that's a temporary condition, you dig?

I like my three pulley on my Trek 620 touring/trail setup. I feel like the more compact rd is less likely to sustain damage or catch on branches and such on less than ideal trails and double track.

Good thoughts. I'm thinking a $15 threaded to thread-less stem converter may be a good move. I am six four with long arms and legs -- the long tt may not be an obstacle to a drop bar build.

Vintage MTB frame up build tips? Gravel/road

The mud on the C and O was a bit too much for my Raleigh Alyeska road tourer last year. I have this frame on the way soon. I like drops, but don't want to shell out a lot of money to make a road...

Roughing up someone who agitates legally and peacefully is anti-democratic.

Let's all work to preserve our constitutional rights, which are even more important than bicycle related legislation.
