    Where do you live? Leave the bike on your front porch and I'll come over and scratch it up a bit for you.

    You're welcome.

    I use a vintage Rhode Gear trunk rack on my battered, little SUV. It holds three bikes, I bought it at a flea market for $15. My wife's crossover has a Hidden Hitch installed on it and we use an...

    I put a triple on my Paramount. I didn't mess with a 30t granny ring, I went all the way down to a 24t.

    Yup, it's a 1991 model, the only year they offered the High Plains in opaque white.

    $88 won't buy you much of a camera lens (non-vintage that is). Even a cheap auto-focus zoom is in the $300 range.

    27" to 700c is an easy conversion if you have the 4mm brake reach and is all but invisible to the eye. 4mm is only 5/32 of an inch, just a hair over 1/8".

    I won't ride in icy conditions. The thought of going down in front of a car...no. Not happening.

    There should be no play if the hub is properly adjusted. In fact the bearings should have a small amount of pre-load. Otherwise you are riding on one or two engaged bearings. This will result in...

    You can cram in a 130mm road rear wheel with an 8-speed cassette as is (or cold-set the rear dropouts slightly), and put 8-speed Shimano bar end shifters on it.

    I'm upside down on any bike I have because I build them from the frame up. I would be upside down if I got the frame for free and I source a lot of parts from bike swaps. And I keep tweaking them....

    If you want a 46/30 crankset VO makes one. Fairly pricey, though.

    I have a couple of frames to build up. One is a black, Japanese Bianchi SS. This has double-butted Ishiwata tubing throughout with 460mm chainstays, fairly long wheelbase for what was billed as a...

    I have been pleasantly surprised by this Roswheel bag, the Velcro straps attach it quite securely and you can't beat the price. I use it with a front handlebar bag (Nashbar or Bushwacker Durango). I...

    That depends on the tires you have on there already. Odds are that what you have will fit. I would pull the tube and look at it. It should give you a range, typically they will say something like...

    I like Panaracer Tservs in 1.75. They are Kevlar beaded and fairly light at ~450 gm, I have weighed mine. A lot of other slicks I have looked at are in the 600+ gm range. They roll well and give a...

    I have gone down, not up. Otherwise the effective top tube length is just too long and I'm too stretched out. Let me put it this way, my optimum top tube length is about 54 cm. That's what I measure...
