    I've been there, it's a pretty cool shop. Though I find it surprising they'd swap in modern brifters on an old Bridgestone. Marketability, I guess? The fact that they mention the original parts are...

    My resolution is to enclose the carport recently vacated by my old Chevelle and convert it into a decent woodworking shop; finish a bunch of guitar builds I started years ago. Also enclose the area...

    With a fine enough spray tip, you don't get a lot of overspray. I was just doing a frame repaint with my airbrush kit and was a little surprised to see how little color got on my dropcloth, hanging...

    Is that one of the onramps to the 'new' Tacoma narrows bridge? I may get a chance to ride out that way tomorrow morning when I'm visiting my in-laws in Gig Harbor. ...

    I run this tiny little C&V hotel up in the northwest corner of the country, which each and every one of you should visit if you ever make it out this way.

    Now with my kids both away at school,...

    One could do worse than to emulate Gunnar Berg and his "Growlery"

    A couple of moths ago I spent a slow evening at work going through a couple years worth of his blog and coveting his Kvale, his...

    You could have avoided this whole thing by just keeping those darn magnets away from your bikes.

    Honest, it's not that hard.

    Looks like a misplaced chain hanger. Maybe the frame builder saw he had run out of standard pump pegs and said, "Eh, what the heck. They're both a bout the same size." :P

    Better pictures will get you better advice. Closeup shots of all the major components is most helpful. In it's current condition, based on those pics, it's worth between...

    I suppose 700C & 27" would make more sense. Or perhaps 700c convertible to 27" or maybe a bike that has removable posts that could be flipped to accommodate both 700c rims AND 27" rims, in a...

    Flipable canti posts are just screamingly awesome.

    But I'm thinking more along the lines of 700c x 27". Why are larger rim sizes so out of fashion?

    Looks exactly like my 1996 Kona Lava Dome, with larger rims, discs and a tiny crank.

    (That Lava Dome is a great bike, BTW, just wish it was my size.)

    Very nice bike. Clean and lube it but don't ditch any of that stuff. (OK, you can take off the dork disc if you want to.)

    You can get chainrings for pretty much any crank set if you know where to look. I don't have any dura ace myself, but I would guess it uses one of the common BCDs (bolt circle diameter) of the time...

    Yeah, you could probably make it work, but I'm with Jon on the difference in gearing being negligible. I built a tringlespeed that was actually fairly practical, 48/38/28 up front with 17T freewheel...

    Best I could find is a few phone-camera shots of my Lambert; the only bike I've ever taken down to bare metal. It was two years ago, and I can still smell the "Aircraft...

    +1.

    All else being equal, the AR will shift ~as well as a 600 in my experience. I own several versions of both.
