    Agreed on the "possible Carre built" comment. The seatstay caps (tho' not stamped w/ his name) and rear derailleur cable loop on the right seatstay are trademarks of his work. And a lot of the...

    For me, it's not so much "lost my nerve", as "lost my verve" when it comes to climbing. Used to hammer my brains out whenever the road went up, to the extent that I got a bit of a reputation: "We...

    I'm running a "flag" triple on a 113mm Shimano UNxx bb and the chain line is just fine. Nice low "Q" too.

    Looks like an older, high-end Benotto (or at least the fork is). EASILY worth $220. If it fits, grab it!

    PX10's came with a couple different styles of lugs over the years. The plain lugs, just like those on the PR10 in the picture, came on the scene in the early-mid 70's IIRC. Prior to that PX10s had...

    I'd be surprised if the wheelbase on that Rigi measured more than 37". A 39" wheelbase is pretty pedestrian, especially in a smaller frame like that. For comparison, my 63cm Eisentraut Rainbow is...

    Just to be picky about it, it's a sportif rather than a road bike - the fenders and mini rack up front are a dead giveaway. But absolutely gorgeous.

    Definitely NOT a UO8. Probably a PA10 (entry level racer). For $125 I'd be all over it!

    I beg to differ. Brass pivot bushings (Competition) are a BIG step up from plastic (Racer). And yes, I've owned and used both. Extensively.

    Buy an additional pair of draw bolts, and attach each fender to the stay with two. Honjo, Lefol et al all used two with good reason. I've mounted both of my sets of VO's that way and have had zero...
