    I'm looking for a Park Tool ISC-1 Internal Seat Tube Clamp. I'm not a big fan of the newer, ISC-4 and before I started in on a freshly painted frame, I was hoping to do so with an ISC-1. Does anyone...

    I was given one of these a few months back. The paint is absolutely shot in every sense of the word but under the mess is an all chrome frame. Jackpot!

    Thanks for the Cyclocross nudge but the reason I put this topic in C&V is a reason still nobody has really touched.


    I'm considering a 1xn city bike setup on an entirely vintage frame. I may...
  6. Am I late to the party or is this narrow/wide thing the newest, emerging trend?

    A well-respected friend linked me to well done steel All-City Space Horse build. Clicking through shows a Paul dogtooth installed. I mention the look of dogtooth being an eyesore and he tells me of...

    I certainly did switch them out. I tried everything and asked my buddies working at shops if they had any thoughts. In the end, it just... wouldn't... work. Now, that was a Nishiki Cresta GT and...

    I haven't measured how wide the canti posts are on my Kodiak but I know that the '86 Cresta I had would not accept Tektro CR720's because of how narrow the fork blade was. So, when I upgraded my...

    6 or 7 months of being pressed under a stack of books later, I decided to take my Dropouts poster to the frame guy 3 blocks away from my house. $28 to heat press out the wrinkles I couldn't and put...

    Not to derail the original conversation, but is there any chance you know if there are plans to hold the Centenario Bartali annually or was this just a one time event for Gino Bartaliís 100th...

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
    The more I mull this over the more I can't escape the nagging feeling of how the chainring guard really removes so much of the beauty of a crankset by masking it...
  13. Vintage (Inspired?) Single Crankset with Chainguard for 42-48T

    I have a Pashley Delibike that needs a new crankset. Currently installed is a no-name, cheap 42t chainring with pants/chainguard. It looks a little like this.

  18. Good, cheap and easy to find saddles. Your top picks.

    I'm curious what others use for good, comfortable, reasonably priced saddles that look good on vintage road rigs.

    I'm a big fan of Avocet Touring and Centurion/Selle Italia Anatomic saddles.

    Well, since you've planned a route 3 blocks from my house (at one point), it can't possibly get any more convenient... unless you want to run the route down 81st Ave?

    Hope to see you all there.
