    Yes, it's definitely a PX10, and in nice, unmolested shape.

    The Gitane would be my keeper, too. It would be too small, but I'd make it work. My favorite brand and my favorite color. I'd definitely...

    Do you always take such a nasty tone when someone dares to disagree with you? I can't see the pictures, but I'm sure they prove whatever your point is.

    You win. I'll keep my ideas to myself.

    Mine ride 2 mm above the tires. That's close enough to knock off goatheads. No noise. No grit flicking.

    They are a different style, made by Pellissier.

    Always behind the bars. Crossed usually works best.

    Left or right control of the front brake is a personal choice and a question you didn't ask.

    I wouldn't buy them to preserve the originals for posterity, but I know from experience that it can ruin a nice ride when an old pulley splits in half. Only the top one is a jockey pulley, by the...

    It takes much more than that. The rear of the hanger has to be cut away with a file or grinder to form a stop. I can see the end of the cut in the shot of the rear derailer. Those early Simplex...

    I used a 30 mm nut on the bike above's fork after drilling it. Both of the brakes are rears that I found at a bike swap. The fronts were probably used for fixies. I had to shorten the 30 mm nut to...

    The same people probably over-torque bolts. It's not easy to crimp a tube with a Park Professional clamp. You have to get really stupid with the adjustment.
