    Wow over a decade later and the debate goes on. :lol:


    I have kneesavers on 3 of my bikes, if not for the kneesavers I would not be using clipless pedals today. I have a wide stance, bad knees...

    The bottle had Velcro glued to it. I bought one back in '81, I hated it. One of my recent purchases had one on it with the original bottle, I gave it back to the seller.

    Cool (no pun intended) but I hope they didn't go underneath those to get the picture.

    If that was a red 1971 with a 25" frame in that condition within reasonable driving distance I would be all over it even at that price. That was my first "real" bicycle and I would love to find...

    Had a Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle thrown at my head in 1973 by two rednecks in a pickup truck. Not sure if it was because I was on a 10 speed or because I had hair half way down my back, probably some...

    This '86 Team Fuji is the only bike I'm not upside down on. I have already bought the consumables needed to put it back on the road and picked up an OEM Fuji saddle for $20. It's going to take quite...

    Is it possible the top of the seat post is pinched in slightly keeping the 26.6 from fitting?



    I know 26.8 was fairly common but my three Fujis, a NOS '82 Monterey frameset, an '83 Espree and...

    Oval head machine screw, given how well the head fits in the countersink in the outer tube I'd say definitely factory installed, not a backyard patch job. Very likely a "budget" seat post, I doubt...

    Try it, you might be surprised. ;) I get my 30th Anniversary Orange Krate down and ride it once in awhile, I'm 6' 1-1/2" and 230 Lbs. It's quite a sight LOL but it's also a lot of fun and the banana...

    The Krates were the top of the Cool list but any "real" (as in Schwinn) Stingray was highly desirable as most of us had to settle for one of the knockoffs from Murray, Hiawatha, JC Higgins, etc. I...

    Nostalgia. It's not that it was a great bicycle but it brings back great memories for a lot of people that grew up in that era, like me. In the late 60's and very early 70's a Schwinn Stingray was...

    If it gets really nasty I spray out the moving parts with Prestone windshield de-icer then fire up the compressor and blow everything out. Otherwise I just wipe it down and blow it out occasionally. ...

    I'd keep the Schwinn, no logical reason other than I have recently developed an attraction to early 80's Panasonic built Schwinns. Probably because I keep coming across them with 25" frames. ;)

    Ebay, just type in "trigger finger mittens". Bought mine in the summer, looks like they double their prices when the weather turns cold, still a good buy.

    I've tried several Balaclavas and couldn't find one I liked, I wear glasses and they all put too much pressure on the bows, even when I cut slots for the bows. Instead I use a Carhartt skull cap...

    As a buyer I hate contacting someone about a bike only to be told it was sold a couple days ago, they've just been "too busy" to take down the ad. It happens a LOT so I've started asking if the bike...
