    Ebay, just type in "trigger finger mittens". Bought mine in the summer, looks like they double their prices when the weather turns cold, still a good buy.

    I've tried several Balaclavas and couldn't find one I liked, I wear glasses and they all put too much pressure on the bows, even when I cut slots for the bows. Instead I use a Carhartt skull cap...

    As a buyer I hate contacting someone about a bike only to be told it was sold a couple days ago, they've just been "too busy" to take down the ad. It happens a LOT so I've started asking if the bike...

    Good save. I just bought foam grips for my World Sport off Ebay for about $8 with free shipping. I'm not a big fan of the foam but the bike is just for my stationary trainer so it's good enough....

    An "AR" derailleur is a SunTour not Shimano and it probably is the original, they were a very popular OEM derailleur in the 80's. I have AR front and rear derailleurs on my '83 Fuji Espree, it's...

    I'm seeing it the same way you are. Take a look at the position of the fender and rack lugs in each picture, the yellow bike and blue bike have the lugs 180 opposite, turn either fork 180 as you...

    I kind of fell into this bike, I wasn't actively looking for a tandem, I had kicked the idea around a little but that was the extent of it. Had I been seriously looking for one I would have bought a...

    Mine was the red 26", my parents wouldn't let me leave the yard with it after dark. Fortunately our "yard" was an acre and a half. :D

    Yeah, I had a heck of a time getting them out of the stem! They're PIVO bars, they had been shimmed in the stem with pieces of old beer can. I'm going to clean up the levers and convert them back to...
