    I packed up an old fillet brazed Schwinn and UPSed it to another forum member. Also cut down a Wright's narrow saddle I had recovered a few weeks ago; that recovery hadn't come out quite right so I...

    I agree, you can probably get your old rim into the useable range, and if it's a specific rim that's no longer made and hard to replace, it may be worth the effort. For a wall hanger, definitely;...

    If you insert the word "Huret" (as a French person would say it while speaking French) into an English sentence, no one would understand you. The H didn't sound like our H, the U is a vowel we don't...

    I can't understand why the period prevents you from having an avatar, but I'll take your word for that. You may also be able to add some other random punctuation, other than the dot/period thing. ...

    Yeah, good idea as long as you remember it's there! If you're like me, more likely you'll be getting a painful reminder.

    Bob, I don't have extensive notes about this but can assure you it's not unheard of. In my "study collection" of dead saddle tops there are three Brooks"standard" and one "narrow" with this extra...

    Yeah, there are a few things like that.

    The current tech is something called a "standlight," which is a capacitor built into a lot of modern dynamo lights. It powers the lights, often at a...

    The rubber expander thing should do it. Fancier works be a pair of wedges, one threaded and one not, like a quill stem. Or you could just bang a cork in there and run a drywall screw into it.
