Have fun, kids.
Stay out of trouble.
I concede that the Viscount bearings are indeed 6003. In fact, I have a pair on my desk now. Don't know what I was thinking at 5AM.....
My Vitus came with that Mavic BB. Threw me for a loop the...
6006 bearings IIRC, same size as a Phil's BB.
I kept the original spindle on mine.
Mine at the end of a charity ride. A mix of Mavic.Superbe Pro and Modolo.
Rev, you've got the bones of a pretty good sermon right here. just change the names.....
I'm not seeing #5 on their website. #205 maybe?
I'm working on an old classic now with the remains of a decent paint job. The bike was left out in the weather and generally has spots of 40-old year old grime and crud baked on. I'm loth to use...
Did it work?
Jim is on the level. That's all I can say.
PM me with all the details of your project. I'm sure I have everything you'll need out in the barn, including switchable index/friction shift levers.
Do you think I'm an OCD case? ;)
But speaking of old Simplex shifters, I converted the mounting band from one into this cable stop:
Not quite. Both had the same tube set. The difference was the groups built on them. Experts tended to be 105/GPX, where Masters were 600.
Pink bar tape?
Ironman paint schemes lend themselves to excessive bar tape treatments:
You'll find it's a great...
Ghost shifting, no.
Twitchy descents, yes. And still my third -favorite ride in the fleet.
No dungon, but there IS a barn:
I don't know; every one of the Gazelle-built Grand Prix that have passed through my hands had standard English BB threads.
Semper Fi, Robbietunes!
It's 5PM, dark, and snowing.
I can look forward to building and selling BSOs until the thaw in April.
Pluses: four builds/restos to keep me busy through the dark months.
As was mine, but I don't remember if I used the TruVative adapter or the Cycle Ops one. In any case, the BB shell of the '73 SS I adapted did not have the ridge in the BB shell an earlier poster...
Nice to see that T-Mar is still with us, if only in spirit.
FWIW, mine is Tange Champion #2 , and more of a sports/tourer rather than a full dress touring bike. It seems to be the same frame as my...
I wonder when they switched to cantis and moved the second bottle braze-on from the bottom of the down tube to the seat tube. I suspect the 500 out in the barn is a couple of years older than yours:...
FWIW, my Super Corsa (TDF frameset w/Campy dropouts) is the nicest riding of all the bikes in the garage. If I were restricted to one road bike that would be it.
The last two long charity rides I've done has been on bikes with 12/13-24 rear clusters couples with a triple up front. One bike was pretty much good to go from the start; the other required a bit of...
