I have an '86 Lemans RS, and found "some" 28s will fit, but not all. I tried Paselas which rubbed, and just squeezed in gatorskins. I had trouble rubbing the rear brake, not the frame.

This has happened twice now, where I carefully remove the dust cap on a hub only to have bent it just enough that it will not tap back in. And, it seems that replacements are not available. One...

The Scapin project is done. This has been the most ambitious project I have ever done, at least for the quality of bike and the challenges in putting it together. The final touch was the decals,...

Also, max heart rate is not a function of age. The poster above who correlated breathing patterns with heart rate has what I believe is the best means of establishing zones short of a VO2 test.

DD - Thanks. I didn't know if the bike came with the Scapin decals. I would like, I think, to add them. Did Scapins have a head badge decal? Also, the tubing decal can stand replacing. Can one...

The local CL always seems to have tons of old mountain bikes. Generally hardtails, and mostly no shocks on the forks, but should be fine for what you are riding. I have had great luck turning these...

A big +1 for item 2. We had a St. Louis area CV ride this spring and had a great time. I'm looking forward to a (hopefully) larger one sometime this fall.

In that case, is there an Italian threaded freewheel to replace the alloy campy one. An added benefit would presumably be not having to find a freewheel tool, which seems to be rare as a unicorn.
