    +1 Probably my favorite saddle ever; I find them very comfortable, and who can argue with those curves?

    No problem with the left shifter?

    Tightening the bolt draws back the conical nut, which in turn expands the diameter of the...

    I tend to keep things a long time. I bought my Gran Sport in 1973. Where I lived it was basically a choice of Schwinn or Raleigh, and Schwinn didn't have any affordable lightweight 531 bikes. I still...

    Here's a more expensive Sugino. If you can't see the difference, don't worry about it. I'm sure yours will work just fine.

    Most of my experience is with friction as well, and I thought it would probably work; just thought I would ask the experts first. Yes, the right shifter switches between friction/sis. I'm actually...
  14. Will a Deore FD thumbie work to control a RD in friction mode?

    Weird question maybe. I'm thinking about switching my fixed gear over to a 1 x 6 drivetrain, perhaps just temporarily to see how I like it. I don't have much in the way of single shifters in my parts...

    Your excitement is understandable, and, if it rides as nice as the Mistral I used to have, entirely justified. The streamers will be a kick.

    My first thought is 1-1/4" Pasela tires, although the...

    I don't pretend to understand the economics of either industry, but it seems to me your comparison might be irrelevant.

    I'd go with the Trek as well, but it's worth noting that it appears to be tighter geometry; shorter stays and, at least by my eyeball, a steeper head angle.

    I was going to say I paid about $220 for my Gran Sport in 1973, which actually aligns with Nlerner's price sheet! I guess there are still a few brain cells left after all.

    I paid $500 for my Moto...

    Smoke. Leaf burning is still a thing in WI. That was the only smoke event I saw, though.

    I went west from Waukesha. The first 12 or so miles are paved and, it seemed, pretty popular. Once it...
