On my very first bike conversion, I had no idea what a crank puller was and I sawed through a nice Stronglight TS drive side crank. It's been almost 10 years and I'm still disappointed in myself.

When I decide to bite the bullet and finally purchase them, I'll likely purchase them from retro-gression.com. I'll be buying just rims.

I ride both a Cannondale CAAD 8 as well as a Surly Steamroller. I think you would do well with a Steamroller or Scrod's suggestion of an All City Big Block. Get the Surly if you want to run tires...

Didn't lurk long enough.


That's a joke up there. :)

For $300, a bike that just needs some adjustmenting isn't a bad shake. Have fun with it!

Mid 80's is my guess, given that the rake on the fork isn't as extreme. Labels and head badge aren't late 70's either.
