    All else aside, congrats on completing your fifteenth lap around the sun. We're all jealous that we're not your age (at least in some ways... ;) ). Happy birthday!

    Didn't you mean to post this on Craigslist's "Missed Connections"? :)

    Just kidding. Any random fun like this is multiplied 10x when it happens on a bike.

    My frame isn't that old but this is my late 1990's steel Tecnos with mostly older alloy Record parts but 2008 brifters and a 10-speed cassette. And yeah, it's my bike: Hawaiian Hello Kitty is just...

    Don't you have reticulated pythons in urban Singapore? I take it they're not that common. Or is that what you meant by "snakes"?

    I saw a mouse (not a rat) today on the West Side Greenway. I just...

    Cleaning Bicycles in a City Apartment

    How do you do it? Do you take your bike out to the nearest park or parking lot? Use the bathtub? If it's the latter, do you use a work stand? I'm also a bit worried about the cleansers and lubricants...

    I didn't even know they made Precisa forks anymore but from a purely aesthetic point of view, I would absolutely get one if you're building up a steel Colnago. A carbon Street or Star fork might be a...

    +1 on Record. Try it out. Dura Ace hoods or Red brifters look strange on a Colnago.

    Shifting Problem with Older Campy Record

    I'm having some problems shifting on to the big ring with an older Campy Record group (originally 8-speed) that's been upgraded to 10-speed. My guess is that the old model front derailleur is having...
