    Help on Derailleur Cable Routing

    For a winter project I'm going to build up an early 80s touring frame, standard triple drivetrain. This one has no braze-ons, no bb guides or cable stops on the frame for derailleur cables until you...

    I would not buy new unless you committed to a particular bike and you know it's going to be a long-term ride. Consider how that bike is going to drop in value once you walk it off the showroom floor....

    I tend to agree. But those rims are not going to use modern commute tires, anything over 70 psi is going to blow off (assuming they are unhooked), and they are going to be heavy besides. If I were...

    27" rims, maybe chromed steel unhooked low pressure rims, and hi-ten frame? - if so, it's a hard sell. Whatever you might decide, note the weight of the bike. I don't think you want to commute on a...
