    If you are keeping the tricolor crankset, I think you're fine with 113 all the way to 116. I was not aware the OEM spindle was that wide.

    I've stuck many a cartridge BB back in those, and I think...

    Kind of a new "template" thing going on, eh?

    They are the future.

    I like the classic lines of the older steel bikes. They just look like bikes, to me. I grew up thinking a Continental was the top of the line, and, like you, a Free Spirit...

    Quite intentional, if that's a good word for it. I did not weigh the frame, but I have weighed the final product.
    Without cages, pedals, or Garmin mount, the bike weighs 16.34 lbs. All the...

    +1

    Many of the retro/STI/Ergo upgrades are easily done, plug 'n' play.
    Many are not, and few of us here have mentioned the PITA it can be, which is half the fun (if it works).

    At first, I skipped over it, too much color. Then I came back, and stared.
    yep, I'd steal that bike.
    Great job.

    There is no "problem" with what I described. It's a description, not a thesis. I'm not sure where you got "feeling" out of a post that doesn't use the word.

    There is no claim being made as to...

    Do not despair. A Columbus fan, I am currently, regularly, swapping in a classic steel (1987 SLX), an "older" carbon (2004 Super Muscle) and a new steel (2014 Life) on the same route, with the same...

    Based on your post, you'll be disappointed. You should really sell that to someone who will appreciate it.
    If, however, you do some diligent research, you may find your attitude changed. If not,...

    I didn't buy any new bikes back when.... I have only done that once. Last May, I paid $1090 for a new frame, Columbus Life with a Columbus FEL fork. I'm about to do it again, Whiskey fork. A little...

    Ah, the venerable P38, one of the finest examples of "appropriate technology" that should be used today instead of the $100 devices we insist on. Light, cheap, effective, able to be made from...

    Best head badge graphics I've ever seen. Cool and beyond. If there are any artists out there, I'm looking for someone to do this on a 2'x3' metal backround, to hang in my garage.

    I had a Kz1100 MkII, and it was classic(ly) heavy, ponderous, ill-handling, and of course, murderously fast in WFO mode. I had a great seat for watching a Seca Turbo get away from a guy, probably...

    According to the catalog, yes. There is not a word of difference in the frame descriptions, all Tange OS tubing. IMO, under-equipped, yes. The 2 and 3 were Taiwan-made, the 5 and 7 Japanese-made. ...

    I can relate. My friend's time span is shorter, and he sticks to road bikes.
    It's his gig, and he's pretty consistent at it. He sells for more than it seems possible.
    No big deal. He's a...
