    The name of the town where I live ends with "mont". The fun starts a half mile from my house.
    There are no flat rides around here.

    I have Brooks saddles on 3 of my bikes, and various other saddles on my other (currently 6) other bikes.

    I'd buy it, if for nothing else, for parts. Wheels, shifters, etc, if parted out could easily bring 250 or more on eBay.

    I have a 40" tool chest bought from my local Home Depot, and it really holds a lot of tools and parts. Here's a link to it. Can't be beat for less than 3 bills.

    Selling a bike that I've built is a money losing proposition. I build them to suit me. Then if I find I don't like it or get tired of it, I can much more easily recoup my investment by parting it out...

    I have a very large adjustable wrench bought from Harbor Freight. I've had good success with it on that type of fixed cup a couple times.

    Stuntex was just expecting one of the good folks on this forum to come to his house, diagnose the problem, go buy the parts, and then fix it. All at no cost. How disappointing.

    If you're 5'8" , seems a 56cm might be a tad large for you. I'm 5'9" with a 32 inseam, and I ride a 54cm. I can certainly ride a 56, but I feel a little stretched out on handlebar reach, especially...

    For gravel roads I favor a hardtail mountain bike with a fairly non-agressive knobby tire. I have a full suspension bike with more agressive tires for the really rough stuff.

    You could do it yourself. Go to the auto parts store and buy a brake cylinder hone. With an electric drill, you should be able to remove .1mm fairly easily.

    I prefer to ride the patched tube and keep a new tube for a spare when I'm riding. I like the comfort of knowing my spare will hold air. Nothing worse than having a flat out on the road and finding...

    Check to make sure your rear wheel quick release is tight enough. I recently went to take off quickly at a traffic light, and when I came down hard on the pedal, my rear wheel was just loose enough...

    The trouble with throwing parts at old road bikes to lower the gearing is you can easily spend more than the bike is worth, especially having a bike shop doing the work. Another option would be to...

    Ditto that. If the frame fits you well, and the upgrades will improve your riding pleasure, by all means you should upgrade. Ignore the snobs and enjoy your bike.

    Mine's been slow for the last few weeks also, and my browser has been freezing up quite a bit. Usually it will freeze for about a minute or two, and then will be fine. No problems on other sites.

    You shouldn't have any worries about it being too cold, as in september if it drops into the 40's, that would be unusual. More likely 50's at night, and 60's to 70's during the day.
