    The Deore 6 spd thumbies BG posted below (post #5 ) are very nice shifters and will work great in friction mode, and quite likely will index well with your existing rear derailleur. Yes I know they...

    Well, a set of these provides two more places to have Patent Campagnolo written on your bike. Let's not overlook that.

    Amazon.com : Origin8 Quill Adapter : Sports & Outdoors

    You could go with an adapter like this one and use a threadless riser stem.

    Huh. Looks like a solution to a non-existant problem to me. All those times I put my feet in toe clips and I never even knew these existed. I never had any trouble whatsoever. Where else is your toe...

    Wow. I'm guessing more than inflation happened to prices between then and 1973 when I paid $220 for a Raleigh Gran Sport. The inflation calculator I used would put the Cinelli at $283 in 1973...

    I couldn't see any ST bottle braze-ons, which is why I wasn't worried about that.

    Your method sounds good, and has the added benefit of having been tested. Mine was just made up.

    I've looked at those for a while and my reservation is the short reach. They always seem to be shown with ergo style levers. My concern is they wouldn't be so good with older style levers eg. Campy...

    OP has already stated he would raise the saddle if he could. Seems to me getting that sorted is job 1.

    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but the saddle position should come first, then work out the...

    Based on the second frame you posted, I'm guessing it's not your size. Otherwise I'd say ride it first, then decide.

    I wouldn't worry so much about parting it out. Some bikes, yes, but this one,...

    I had a grasshopper green Western Auto "stingray" with a 3-speed stickshift on the top tube. First bike bought for me at a bike shop rather than a hand-me-down. From there I moved up to a Varsity....

    Nice, love that finish. Can you explain what's happening with the stem? Looks like some sort of riser/extender bit?

    While it's not in showroom condition, most of us around here are pretty happy to find used bikes that look as good as that one. It may need a few consummables replaced, but fundamentally it's...

    Blowing them out, huh? Ha, I hope all can agree ability to hold air is a baseline need.

    Thanks for the heads up though. I might wind up stashing these for a bit. This is a good reminder to stick...

    Cool, thanks.
  22. Experienced with Challenge Paris-Roubaix tubulars?

    I've read some fairly lukewarm reviews of these, but mostly they were comparing them to Dugast, FMB, etc. Now I see the Challenge tires a couple places on sale at 2/$85 shipped, and that no longer...

    In general, I wouldn't think about buying a used helmet, but if you know the seller and are 100% confident about its integrity, then OK. As far as cleaning (I think that's what you're asking), I...

    No worries then; mine measure 22.4! I find them OK if I inflate them to around 90 psi. Above that, they do get pretty harsh.
