    Color me jealous. The local Salvation Army store usually has a good selection of rusted Walmart grade bikes that start at $100 minimum.

    I suspect that the similarity to the adjective describing something with mange could be an issue as well.

    My 82 Team has an Ishiwata stamping on the steerer, but my 75 Pro has a 26.8 seatpost,...

    I worked security at the start line of one of the stages at this years Tour of California, and almost got run over by Jens and Wiggo (among others) in the process.

    Dammit, now you're making me regret moving away from Santa Cruz even more. That flea market (the one at the old drive-in, right?) was a regular ritual of mine.

    I've since learned my lesson. If I use the TA cage, use dark colored bottles.

    I'm just enough of a cheapskate that I don't want to completely give up on a couple of virtually brand new [white]...

    Yeah, for day to day use, I've switched over to a King "Iris" cage. The TA cage just has a special place for it's zeitgeistiness on a 70's bike though.
  8. It really does look most like some sort of...

    It really does look most like some sort of oxidization from the cage itself, as best I can tell. I'll give the Scotchbrite pad a go. Several runs through the dishwasher weren't budging it, and I...
  9. Removing black marks left on bottles by TA alloy cage?

    I've discovered that 1970's TA alloy bottle cages are very prone to marking up bottles. Not just the normal scrapes and scratches that are par for the course everywhere, but black marks. Is anyone...

    You're as qualified as anyone, as far as I know, for this challenge!

    Theoretically, I could just strip the bikes that I do have down to framesets, and then do the math from the weights of the...

    Fuji Catalog Weights?

    For those of you that have old Fujis in a stock configuration, how accurate are the weights listed in the catalogs that they put out? Provided that they are accurate, do we know what size bikes...

    I've really never encountered any negativity from other riders, other than the occasional sneers from those well-heeled weekend warriors that look down anything less than a Cervelo. On a few...

    A little while back, there was a Bob Jackson at a local garage sale. Very good deal, but it would have involved not eating for the next week and a half, which wouldn't have gone over very well with...
  17. Prices of various top of the line C&V bikes when new?

    Reading some discussions elsewhere of modern "halo" bikes, and the apparent price creep of modern top of the line bikes beyond simply keeping pace with inflation, I've started to wonder about the...
  18. For those of you that like Brooks Swifts, what else works for you?

    My posterior absolutely adores the Brooks Swift that I've got on one of my bikes, but I'm hunting around for ideas for lighter / less-fussy in the wet saddles for future projects. Standard...

    You might be able to find some sort of red anodized BMX ones to stand-in, at least getting you the right sort of finish to match.

    Out of curiosity, do you know anything about the history of the 192's? I've got an oddball one that I picked up at a local co-op, and I haven't been able to dig up much of anything on them myself. ...

    I've got a set, actually. I had already set them aside since they didn't really work with the color scheme of the bike, IMHO. Now, apparently I'll be locking them away in the safe deposit box.

    Red Sugino dust caps?

    Are the red Sugino dust caps associated with a particular era, specific cranksets? Random bling with no particular significance?

    It's been a while since, as a Californian, that I've had to even think about this - but I just discovered how bad Gatorskins are in the rain. Tried to go for a little spin on my day off, and didn't...
