    I have a miyata 1000 and a miyata triple cross hybrid and the hybrid is easier to modernize since it's 135mm in the rear and the canti posts are farther apart than on my 1000, which is an 88 I think,...

    I'm about 200lbs and I put about a 1000km on a pair of 6400 hubs this season, easily half of that was on gravel... no load besides a small handlebar bag but they still feel as smooth as they did when...

    It was sunny today and the high was 12C so I basically had to go out and ride a 100km. Got some nice pics though!

    If the 46 ring you have doesn't have any pins or ramping for shifting you should be okay to run it as an outer ring. Some rings sold these days are only for inner or outer positions because of the...

    Here's some from a 100K I did a couple weeks ago. The bike is a 92 miyata triple cross hybrid pressed into long distance duty. Works well enough for me.

    If saving money is the goal you likely find another hub close enough in size to the heliomatic that you can just take the wheel apart and lace the new hub up with the same spokes. If you don't want...

    If you can afford it the tubus fly would be a slick rack to put on this bike if you're not planning on loading to load up on your commute... I'm sure there are some others like it that are slim, I...

    Looks like a 90mm sturmey from a quick glance. Could be an atom too. I would guess that arm is a custom job.

    I finally got around to taking a picture of my only orange bike, a 'retro-roadie' I built up from an ebay frame. The white tape is that fizik microtex stuff, wipes clean pretty easily compared to...

    Hozan still makes a very similar tool, (pretty expensive) the c-358 but it comes with a feeble half-inch rod that is supposed to turn it instead of wrench flats. I bent the rod the first time I used...

    I had the same issue on an early 80 Bianchi, the canti posts were spaced closer together. I would just buy a newer replacement brake like this one and put some new koolstop pads in.

    I'm a fan of the Cinelli Unicantor repro saddle and also the various knock-offs made back in the day, they often go for 5-10$ and seem to have more give than the modern kind. I like them because they...

    Anyone that's riding in the winter and has a chain drive should treat themselves to a KMC stainless chain, it's only 1/8" which is a bummer but I haven't seen mine get rusty at all. I have a...

    8 speed ultegra bar ends are available for 65$ from the UK with free shipping so I'd go that route. I bought the 9 speed version and it came with cables, housing, downtube stops and all the other...

    I'll add to the "just fix it and ride it first" chorus. I rode a bike that didn't fit for a while and switching to one that fit better was a revelation. Made going longer distances so much easier.

    Sturmey-archer drum hubs would work fine for a folding bike. The rear hubs come in a variety of configurations: internal gear hubs, freewheel and cassette hubs. I've used 70mm and the 90mm drums on...

    I've built up a number of wheelsets with cr-18 rims and have been happy with them considering the price. I tend to run 32mm tires on them though, 28 might be a bit narrow.
