    No worries...I only rarely get an inspiration to stir the pot, and am too busy these days to follow A&S much anyway. Those baby seals aren't going to club themselves!

    I am bemused that my little joke thread has been resurrected after two months, long after the over-wrought posting that I was parodying has slipped over the horizon. Nice to see that most took it in...

    I have the same paperwork from the front derailleur! If we put them together, they might be worth...well, never mind.

    So it was on Sunday, bloody Sunday? How long, how long must we sing this song?

    + 1 Except...Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly Love, and this happened in Boston.

    Great ride, great weather for November (just a BIT windy southbound), great bikes, great food and drink at Mark B's, and most importantly a great group of people. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    According to Weather Underground, tomorrow is expected to be warmer than today, which was itself not too bad, at least for me working out in the yard...admittedly not right on the windy lakefront.

    I can recommend Hell of the North, an Australian TV doc about Paris Roubaix, centering on Stuart O'Grady's 2007 win, but using that as a springboard to talk about the race in general.

    I had a reference to that in my comment, but cut it before posting, because brevity.

    I would say 'great minds think alike' (ironically of course) but as we both live in cities that...

    Divvy, Chicago's bikeshare, is expanding as well, 175 new stations coming, including next spring one at the El stop a block from our house.

    Judging from the numbers of blue Divvies you see...

    There, fixed that for you. No need to thank me, I live to serve! :thumb:

    In bicycles, lighter = more expensive. This goes back at least to Reynolds 531 butted, ie thinner, tubing vs mild steel, probably earlier than that.

    And of course the profit margin will be...

    :lol:

    I agree with Jens Voight's philosophy of 'HTFU*,' but I've got several years on even the venerable Jens and ride for fun, so have no problem adapting to deal with routine aches and pains. ...

    Now that I'm looking more closely, the upper rails of the frame don't look to be symetrical. Symmettrical. Even.

    Yep, the Sekai seems like a smokin' deal for a college town, unless there is some issue (frame damage, bad rust, stuck seatpost). I think the seller is wrong about the size being good for someone 5'...

    Thanks, fellas. It is indeed possible the frame itself is tweaked rather than the springs. The saddle seems designed to frustrate any effort at disassembly or even getting a purchase on it. The...
  19. Brooks is bent...or does it just 'dress to the left'?

    I bought this B67s used for my wife's mixte a couple of years ago. I bought it along with several other pieces and didn't really notice till I got home that it seemed to be leaning slightly to the...

    Heads up, indeed. Did you hear a whistling sound above you, a few minutes ago? Might even have mussed your hair up.

    Colnago, Rossin, Ciocc are highly sought after and therefore expensive.

    As noted above, if there's any chance your partner is not riding/appreciating the Rossin, see if you can get that. (And...

    I just found a Dura-Ace 5 sp 13-21 if you're interested. Dirty but seems to be in good shape.

    I sold my Turbo, a 1984, black, with a somewhat more desirable component group, for $450 on eBay. It was in fantastic original condition though. The Ironman did take the place of the Turbo in...
