Fun. zippy ride.
I'm not saying everyone should do this. But I'm doing it. :D
Having looked through bins of confiscated stuff being sold off by TSA, I can tell you that a pedal wrench can not be carried-on.
You are correct sir! It has the beginning of a crack... I'm going drill the relief hole that should have been designed in.
jeirvine , you seriously strain the meaning of "valuable" in this context. :)
You're right, but I'm all set. I appreciate the concern. There won't be any 40mph descending on this bike. I just want to say, "I'm riding my first 10-speed again", probably on a rail trail at kid...
Build #1 is done. Came in just under $100. Good thing too because weather and WAF* are not conducive to cycling a lot these days. Just had time for one quick snap before the light died. I hope I can...
My first 10-speed was a late 60's Raleigh Record given to me by my next-door neighbor. Probably 1982-ish. I just rescued it from purgatory in my parents' damp cellar where it sat for about 25 years....
I can tell you that on my Build #1 , I'm reaching back into my distant past and using some MTB stuff that I've owned for 20+ years. Did I pay for it then? Yes. Is it worth anything now? Maybe...

Modolo aero levers with disintegrating hoods
TEASER PROJECT 2:
Yes, it is a "Death Stem"; it is starting to crack; and I am going to...

Jon, we should meet up for a salt-grinder ride. I could bring my UO-14 6 speed. (Sturmey-Archer hub w/2 cogs) Bob, you bring your eleventy-gear Cannondale.
See how nice this is? Anyone interested?
Definitely not '94.
I have this:
58X58 True Temper RC2 oversize chromoly tig-welded
Too big or I would not sell. Very smooth,...
I agree with the Risse recommendation.
Risse Racing - High Performance rear shock absorbers for Cannondale Mountain Bikes - Replacement
This is true^
But... the replacement parts are absolutely the bottom of the Shimano line, and you can't keep the old BB & FD.
As I understand it, it is a contest to find something that needs work, buy it for as little as possible, and then see how much "C & V" style you can put into it for little or no money. The end result...
Except for crit, a Raleigh Clubman (vintage) would be excellent.
Please be aware that the rod brakes on that machine will require a Westwood-pattern rim, which has a raised center ridge to keep the brake pads off the spokes.
I can't resist adding this Lil Chik to this thread:
