    Thanks for being more specific. I should have specified interior width.

    You wouldn't mount 23mm tires on anything wider than a 23mm rim. I'm currently killing it on some Alex DA22 rims that are 14mm interior width with 32mm tires. Cornering is noticeably worse. Stoked to...

    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...

    Well **** Jim, you'd think that if one of us knew, we'd probably have answered that question an age ago. Sometimes people go out of business, suck it up and move on. No need to be snarky about being...

    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!

    I love my Steamroller. I'm running 32's on it right now and I feel like a kid again. I have a road bike that I had been riding primarily with 23's and 25's on it. I like the wider tires and I can...

    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.
