    Wald stuff is just non existent over here. Also, Hi Aaron, it's been AGES!
  2. I went back for another look, and realised that...

    I went back for another look, and realised that this bike probably wasn't going to flip for 3x the price; it's missing the fenders, has a different stem fitted, and is a bit scuffed and scratched....

    $500 would still represent doubling my money. I'm sure it's a repo, but still as rare as hen's teeth here.
  4. I should be buying this Schwinn Grey Ghost, right?

    Hi all, long time no see. I chanced across a Schwinn Grey Ghost, so rare in this country that I've never seen a Krate of any sort in the metal, at a local second hand shop for about $150. All my...

    I cannot recommend going with the low gearing; test ride one first. I think 70% of people will want standard; on a standard 3 speed, the top end is what I find lacking. I had a 6 speed, which was...

    It was not the happiest day of my life. My fault, too, for not checking the tailgate was shut properly, though I am more than a little bit chagrined with the person behind me, who did not so much as...

    I am 6'3, and found my F type just fine, with the telescopic seatpost. Sadly, it fell out of the back door of my van whilst driving, and was gone by the time I was able to get back. I'm picking up a...

    Well.......actually, a Downtube Full Suspension will accomodate people of that height too. I'm 6'3 and around 250lbs, and I have both. The Brompton with the telescopic seatpost would take someone...

    What would put me off doing it is this: Any bike of that vintage with steel rims is mostly braked by wishful thinking and your trainers, specially in the wet. To get it to stop in any meaningful way,...
  10. Suggested replacement connectors for Magicshine?

    I've got a 1st gen Magicshine, and after a year and a half, the cables have given up near the connectors, from twisting to try to undo them. So, I plan to buy a couple of replacement connectors, and...

    It's lovely, and I would love to have such a bike, BUT, and they're big buts (I like big buts, and I cannot lie)

    a) It's underbraked. A rear brake alone is never enough. In my view, one brake is...

    Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, they've always been "choppers", but I know in the US muscle-bike is the term. Rudy - I've been around, just not much ;)

    Yeah, I've seen white, but I'm not sure whether they might be too much.

    Ok, my bad. In the picture, it looks very much as though you're measure the TT, not the ST, because of the way the seatpost appears to be emerging at an angle to the tape. Looking again, I guess...

    Puch Muscle Bike

    I had one of these when I was a kid, my parents sold it when I was a late teenager without telling me. I've never seen another in the flesh, and struggled to find a picture of exactly this even...

    (the clue, but the way, is the head tube length. I tend to ride 24", and can ride 25", and the headtubes on both of those are longer. I'd guess this is 23")

    You appear to be measuring the top tube? Normally when someone gives a frame measurement without specifying what measurement it is, it's the seat tube. A 25" bike is big. Not impossible big, but 6'3...

    I bent two Park levers trying to get the Marathons off my Downtube recently outside a bike shop. I can do it at home with 3 or 4 Pedro's yellow levers, but it's a battle. The shop then broke two...
