~79 Pogliaghi—what's it worth?

Mix of Campagnolo (brakes, shifters, crankset, and derailed) and Shimano (Dura Ace hubs and 6-speed cassette). It's been my commuter/ballpark ride for the last two years, but it's not as comfortable...

No, it's one he had. He bought the frameset from someone else, arranged for the powder coating (had the stem done at the same time), then built the bike up with a Campy Centaur gruppo. I need to ride...

He's asking $1200. No affiliation with the seller, but it's my size and nearby.

Thanks.

I bought my first vintage bike (a ~79 Pogliaghi) earlier this year from a guy who works at a local bike shop. I test rode it for a few miles. It handles a lot differently than my IRO, which I...

Two speeds or three?

I currently commute on a single speed at roughly 70 gear inches. I'm planning to look at a Brompton, but I'm not sure whether the two-speed model or the three-speed model would be better for me. I...

Rear derailer question

I have an old Schwinn Continental I've set up as a 1x7 communter, using a Suntour barcon, cheap 7-speed freewheel, and Shimano Tourney derailer. The shifting can be jerky when shifting into an easier...

Tire problem?

Just ordered a pair of Schwalbe Marathons, 700 x 25. When I flex one of the tires, it makes a sound like a corrugated hose stretching in and out. The other is silent. So, is this indicative of a...

I've got the high tops. Better grip than the Sambas (I don't ride w/toe clips), and they keep my feet relatively warm and dry in the rain. Comfortable to walk in as well, though I mainly use them for...

I was having problems with the master link on my chain, so I bought a new Shimano 6-7-8 speed chain (116 links) and installed it. I didn't take any links out. If this looks OK (smallest cog left,...

Here's a picture of the derailer with the chain on the smallest cog, for the sake of comparison. The chain is new, so if I add links, can I just add those I took off originally?

Rear derailer chain rub

I'm running a 1 x 7 setup, with a 46-tooth chain ring. When the RD is lowest gear (28-tooth), the chain rubs on the jockey wheel cage. It shifts fine otherwise and doesn't seem to have any problem in...

I have a Schwinn Continental that I converted to single speed. I now want to run it as a 1x6 or 1x7 speed. The wheels are 27 inch. I've had a 6-speed freewheel on it, but I was wondering if a 7-speed...
