    Don't worry, cotton tape only lasts about a month or so anyway, so you'll get to replace it pretty soon.

    Old rigid-frame mtb's in general are one of the best buys in cycling. I would not fixate on any particular model, just look for something that is both nice and inexpensive.

    The bike actually fell in the lake twice while I was photographing.
    Here are some close-up's:

    The fork crown is one of the more distinctive features of the frame.
    Very well-done lugwork....

    There were several saddles (Cinelli, Ideale, and others) that were just a bare plastic shell. They look absolutely awful but must be pretty light.

    If I'm not going to keep a frame then I don't put anything into it, and price it accordingly. I think a lower-priced frame is usually easier to sell, and of course it's a lot less work. Let the new...

    I would say all Klein's were high-end, I have never seen one that I would call mid-range or below. Shimano 105 is not low-end.
    Of course used prices for anything always vary widely depending on...

    I have a Suntour AP 13-28 7-speed I have run with a Nuovo Record drivetrain with no problem. The Super Record will handle at least a 28t and other folks have used it on 30t and 32t FW's. It has a...

    I think Klein's will be among the most collectible of aluminum bikes. How aluminum frames in general will fare I have no idea. It's not steel but at least it's still metal.

    I have 2 pairs of those, some Detto's and Vittoria's with the slotted cleats. It's the only type I've ever used, although I just bought a pair of shoes for my one set of clipless pedals. I like...

    The double eyelets and brazed-on rack mounts on the forks and rear stays remind me more of a touring bike. Looks nice.

    No grails for me, I'm already obsessive enough enough without The Search for The One. I kind of like being surprised by something really cool just popping up. I do like some brands more than others,...

    I was fine, actually-- I flew over the handlebars, landed on soft ground (it was raining), and slid on the wet grass for several feet. The fork and frame were bent back so far that I couldn't turn...

    I had an '82 710 I built with Campy Nuovo Record and MA-2 clincher wheels. I loved it and it was my main bike for nearly ten years. Alas, one day I rode through a puddle pretty fast and hit a...

    To me there is nothing sacred about original gearing if it's a bike you intend to ride.

    What a cool bike! Nice job. One suggestion-- the modern-style seat post looks very out of place and is very visible with the cutaway saddle. It would be easy to replace it with a straight seat pin...

    In the mid-late 70's a teenager like myself could afford nice bikes like a Motobecane Grand Jubile ($300 in 1976) and a Raleigh International ($425 on sale in 1977). I could have bought a Raleigh...

    Velo Orange sells Dia Compe 204 hoods for $12/pair. I use them on DC Gran Compe, Campagnolo, and Modolo levers.
    The Cane Creek's are for Weinmann-style levers.

    I think tubular wheels were standard for racing bikes back then, so your Mavic rims are just right. I have been riding on a pair of YJ tubular tires for over a year now and have yet to get a flat....
