That Peugot has actually been up on CL in my area for over a year. I offered the guy 200 bucks for it a while back and he wouldn't bite. Kind of been steering clear.

I saw some advice given in this thread about a year ago. Someone was asking where to find a nice cromo frame that would be light and decent for a road bike, but not crazy expensive. I think someone...

Thanks for the helpful replies, everyone! I wish I could take them on as a project, but it's just not going to happen. I'm going to post them on CL for 50 bucks and see if anyone bites. :)

I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice about the value of some wheels. I bought a 77-78 RSC a while back and fixed it up. I put new wheels on it because the original wienmann (?) concave...

I have to say, I was really pleasantly surprised when I took my bike to the supermarket the other day (77 supercourse) and weighed it on the scale at the entrance. If the measurement was accurate, it...

Those are both. One is a surfboard (circa 1962 so it would probably get a little love from this crowd) and the red one is a lifeguard style paddleboard -- the kind you paddle on your knees or chest.

Wow.:twitchy:

That's more patience than I could muster. My wall has a little more room on it, I guess, but I kind of like having very little stuff.

Love the mtb. You have an awful lot of bikes. I feel silly for having three. One is a trail bike and the other two are commuters -- one fixed gear and one geared (the SC).

I was looking at Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires. They come in sort of blue, and I've had really good luck with gatorskins. A lot of the reviews on Amazon complained about sidewall blowouts, but...

Got to love that Florida sun, right (that bar tape used to be as black as the stem)? I'm guessing that's why mine don't last long, and my bike spends a lot of time in the sun. Of course, the trade...

'77 Raleigh Supercourse, original bars, from what I can tell, which means they're 23.8 if I'm not mistaken.
