    I think "Moncalieri" refers to the town where Nisi is located (near Torino/Turin) , rather than a particular model.

    Tops on my list is the Karakoram Highway from Western China to Pakistan. I read that they recently closed it to cyclists in Pakistan due to security concerns (security for the cyclists, that is), but...

    Spend the 50 bucks for YJ tubulars and give them a try. I installed a set of YJ cheapies on my Atala in August 2013. I have ridden them about 2000 miles since then, with maybe a quarter of that on...

    Ex-racer here. I entered one 10-mile race when I was 16, on my Motobecane Grand Jubile with 27x1-1/4 wheels. I had no idea what to do. I started my final sprint about half a mile out and thought I...

    Don't worry, cotton tape only lasts about a month or so anyway, so you'll get to replace it pretty soon.

    Old rigid-frame mtb's in general are one of the best buys in cycling. I would not fixate on any particular model, just look for something that is both nice and inexpensive.

    The bike actually fell in the lake twice while I was photographing.
    Here are some close-up's:

    The fork crown is one of the more distinctive features of the frame.
    Very well-done lugwork....

    There were several saddles (Cinelli, Ideale, and others) that were just a bare plastic shell. They look absolutely awful but must be pretty light.

    If I'm not going to keep a frame then I don't put anything into it, and price it accordingly. I think a lower-priced frame is usually easier to sell, and of course it's a lot less work. Let the new...

    I would say all Klein's were high-end, I have never seen one that I would call mid-range or below. Shimano 105 is not low-end.
    Of course used prices for anything always vary widely depending on...

    I think Klein's will be among the most collectible of aluminum bikes. How aluminum frames in general will fare I have no idea. It's not steel but at least it's still metal.

    I have 2 pairs of those, some Detto's and Vittoria's with the slotted cleats. It's the only type I've ever used, although I just bought a pair of shoes for my one set of clipless pedals. I like...

    I was fine, actually-- I flew over the handlebars, landed on soft ground (it was raining), and slid on the wet grass for several feet. The fork and frame were bent back so far that I couldn't turn...

    To me there is nothing sacred about original gearing if it's a bike you intend to ride.

    What a cool bike! Nice job. One suggestion-- the modern-style seat post looks very out of place and is very visible with the cutaway saddle. It would be easy to replace it with a straight seat pin...
