    I recently sold a similar bike on Ebay for about $1200. Pantographing, in my experience, is a funny thing. Some people will kill for it. Others - mostly the guys who are into this vintage because...

    Well, yeah, and lots of people have posted here about their 35 year old shorts. The 20 year old who bought his shorts in 1960, though, is in his mid-seventies...

    Speaking just for myself, I'm not looking for any kind of vindication, mostly because I do believe that the risk of being struck and killed by a car is still very, very small. I've just decided that...

    It's based on experience. Which you don't have.

    As for your link dump, it's just more evidence confirming the things folks have been saying about you here.

    I know a couple of fellows with functional shorts from the 60s and 70s. Those folks are just too old to bother with something as idiotic as the internet. I suspect that may be the limiting factor...

    That's a leap of logic I'm not seeing, but whatever.

    Perhaps we could organize a little experiment: the bare-headers agree to post nothing at all on this thread. Then we see how long it takes for...

    Well, as a bare-header who almost never gets left alone about it, and who hears the same thing from other bare-headers both in the real world and here on BF, I'm in a much better position to comment...

    That's a valid point. Maybe non-helmet-threaders need to get informed before spouting off about "Darwin candidates" and such.

    "Tribalism" may be the case with the helmeteers but I think the average bare-header just wants to be left alone. I'm not making any kind of statement when I rid without a helmet. I just don't find a...

    Two points:

    1) The thread tends to be a "bit warm" in large part due to smug helmet wearers posting things like "As long as I don't have to pay your medical bills".

    2) The "I set an example for...

    Portacatena. I kind of like mine. On a "gentleman's" bike where you don't want to get your hands dirty fixing a rear flat, it's sort of fun.

    As to rootboy's question, I always found the Delta...

    The shell of a bicycle helmet is too thin to "spread the impact" and does little to nothing to help absorb energy. Bicycle helmets made without a shell, like the original Giro, pass impact tests as...

    I suspect that most people can get away with most things most of the time. It's not as though such set-ups are instant death or anything. It's just a question of "possibly" increased risk.

    That's why bikes made for fenders traditionally have quite a bit of clearance at the bridges and crown. The idea is to have a minimum of 1 cm. between the tire and the fender, which means the bridges...

    No vacuum or anything, but pebbles and sticks and various other garbage does adhere to the tire for a fraction of a second and sometimes makes it into the fender. If the "entrance" at the tire/fender...
