    Probably Ishiwata 022 which is all they used in the early 400 series from 1979 to 82, consisting of mostly 412 over those years with a year or 2 including the 414. These were sport bikes, meaning...

    BS! I have several bikes with sidepull single pivot brakes and I'll put them up against any brake and they'll all stop in the same distance if all things are equal. I use to race on sidepull brakes...

    On top of all of that there isn't a carbon fork made yet designed for heavy touring like the forks found on bikes like the Voyager that was given for an example.

    Budget price bikes from the 70's...

    I got my Tubus racks from here, at the time I bought them they had the best deal, not sure about today though. Tubus Bicycle Touring Bike Racks, TheTouringStore.com

    Price is right? only if they were free than maybe the price would be right to someone. In my opinion anyways! LOL

    And those Ciamiillo brakes are in line price wise with Ultegra, not a bad deal considering they're also lighter and stronger than Ultegra or Dura Ace for that matter at 166 grams for the pair.

    I can't figure out how they dance while holding their pants up so they don't fall to their ankles. What's really funny is watching someone run with those type of pants.

    I agree too. I also have both new and old and all my vintage bikes are in excellent condition except for the 84 Trek 660 due to 20 years of Southern California sun ate the paint and decals, but the...

    25 pounds? Should be closer to 28 to 29. These bikes may have used low end tensile steel tubing but the chrome finishes they put on the stays and forks really made them look quite nice, only the...

    Good thing because those Super Corsa bikes have the fame of being the most comfortable steel bike ever made by most people who have ever rode one.

    I own 2 Miyatas and love them, but that bike you have is a very low end bike and your's has a lot of problems that you'll never be able to fix without spending a lot more money and time than the...

    I actually remember this color and it is an odd color but actually when seen in the sunlight is quite attractive. It's not orange but it's not red, it's in between. However I wouldn't pay the...

    It won't bite the industry at all due to slick marketing and all the Pros riding them. There may come a time that a new frame material might come along then CF will be put to pasture and a new...

    Not only does the analogy not hold up but aircraft CF is completely different and a heck of lot stronger than a CF bicycle frame. And there's now even discussions going on about the long term life...

    I don't know why people don't like that seat post, it looks like any other seat post except for the small flair at the top, it's black so it matches the color, I don't get the negatives.

    Last time the dollar was strong and the pound was weak I happen to have a business trip to England which I turned into a personal trip as well and took my wife. While there we took a side trip to...

    Torelli is a lot like Rivendell, Rivendell sources their top of the line custom bike now to Waterford, but it had 2 other manufactures before them, Grant Petersen gives them the design; in the same...

    Torelli steel bikes were also very good and another brand that goes by unnoticed that shouldn't. They were highly respected. The reason a lot of brands don't get the recognition that the "big" name...

    I've never heard they were ever built by Basso, and why would they have been? You're getting mixed up with the owners of Pogliaghi who sold to Rossin, then Rossin sold the Pogliaghi line to Basso,...

    So far the Dinotte hasn't addressed the side lighting problem they have, the company saying it's Quad Red is 30% brighter from the side than the 300R, which isn't saying much since the 300R lost...

    I would because I know a wee bit more about them then most do. Just because they were a smaller shop doesn't make them lessor bikes, in fact maybe even better since they didn't have to rush orders...

    That wouldn't keep me from buying it if I lived in that area, though Ignaz Schwinn didn't have that issue for a long time.
