I just got done cleaning it up. It is in stellar condition, and appears to be a 1987 based off the circled 7 on the back of the crank arms. All it needs is new cables, housing, and tape. Tires seem...

On the way home from work today, I saw this sitting outside of a pawn shop. What I noticed was the Campy crank. I talked them down to $60 and walked out with it. It's a "John Howard" KHS Eleganza....

My newest, I built up this Mercier after finding the brand new frame and fork on Craigslist for $100. Too good a deal on a Reynolds 853 frame to pass up. It has all Campagnolo Record 10 parts and...

I do not do business with LBS's that sell Trek, and 90% of the ones in NC do. So therefore, I do all online shopping in this state, other than buying tubes and whatnot from the one Cannondale dealer...

A bit chilly today in NC, did 31 miles on a very hilly route. Did a 7 mile ruck run with a 50lb ruck yesterday, so my body was a bit sore today.

I was kidding on the junk part. I've had many quality steel bikes over the years, and one thing I've learned is that there are some fantastic ones that have come out of Asia. I think this particular...
