    Man, I know that the newer materials far outpace the "old stuff," but I tend to think that so much of what we feel can be chalked up to fit, geometry, tires, etc. Out of all the bikes I've owned -...

    This.

    Jim, I have a 1982 AA Special. Although I am the furthest thing possible from a "fast" rider, it continues to be my favorite "fast" bike. I think you'll enjoy yours quite a bit and will likely get...

    This afternoon I'll be heading to the co-op to see if I can dredge up a set of fender stays. Barring that, I'll simply order a set of SKS stays so that I can install this NOS set of Bluemels Popular...

    No, modern stays are just fine with me actually. I've been simply too busy, too cheap, and too focused on the other aspects of the build to go out and locate a set. It'll happen. I've been saving...

    Sorry - I'm sometimes in my own little world, using invented language. "JRA" translates to "Just Ridin' Around." It's the concept of riding just to ride.
