    I have never owned a brifter (downtube, barcon, or 3-speed only), but I do find myself enticed by the Retroshift/Gevenalle friction brifters. Somebody tell me why I shouldn't be?

    OK, it sounds like I'm looking for another Peug, or maybe a Crossroads. The plan is to use a Sturmey-Archer S-5 five-speed in the back, which might be a little odd with a Specialized, but heck, why...
  3. Notable low- to mid-range frames with long top tubes?

    Hi. For my current city bike project, I'm looking for a '70s or '80s touring-type frame with a long top tube.

    Basically, I'm looking for another frame like my '84 Peugeot P-something, on which...

    Awesome -- I've got a couple of bikes that would benefit from block & tackle. Simple machines ftw!

    Just 'cause nobody's said it yet:

    If you'd like to rotate the bars up so that the tops are in flat position, but you find the drops uncomfortably angled when you do that, you might want to get...

    FWIW, when I took the League of American Bicyclists instructor certification course, we were told that you should replace your helmet after five years, due to styrofoam degradation.

    That may...

    C_A, that's a very cool setup. Is the cable guide on the pinch bolt a standard part, or did you make it?

    Yup, I've got those in 635 on my DL-1 and love them. Might try to convince my friend that cream is the way.

    Awesome, that looks like exactly what she needs.

    Any others out there?
  11. Kevlar / flat protection in 26 x 1 3/8 (590, 650A, EA3)?

    One of the English 3-speeds I look after is getting a lot of flats lately, with cheap Cheng Shin tires.

    The only options I can find for kevlar or flat protection in 590 are the Schwalbe Marathon...

    Very cool. It looks like they used the handlebar and rod brake directly from the DL-1; is the brake stirrup enclosed in some kind of fairing?

    As for the axle nut: no idea, haven't seen one...
  13. What do you want to buy with the strong USD?

    If you're in the US, the exchange rate vs. the euro, pound, yen, and other bike-oriented currencies is quite good right now. (No disrespect to folks in other countries...these things definitely go...

    Very cool bike, not easy to find in N. America. I'd try to fix up what you've got there, including the chaincase (if that's what you mean by "sheet metal").

    I've got a 2006 Prius and a 1997 Saturn wagon. With the back seat folded down, both will fit a full-sized roadbike inside, without removing a wheel.

    For trips with more luggage, bikes, or people,...

    Yeah, this. I re-use mineral spirits, filtering it through a coffee filter between uses, but after a while it's just too contaminated to be useful. What do you do with it then, if you're not a...

    Huh -- I'm interested in the difference, in the chart below, between the Campagnolo and Japanese markings for (what should be) the same items -- is "36 x 24F" actually a different threading from "36...

    Check out "Studded Tires" by Nokian. Classic stuff out of Finland. ;)
  20. replacing a broken rail on a Brooks B66 sprung saddle?

    A '74 Raleigh Superbe came to me with a Brooks B66 saddle in pretty bad shape: leather ripped out at the bolts, and the stretcher-adjuster piece at the nose missing. Rails and springs are OK.

    That's a really nice bike, but I don't see what's wintery about it; when you say "winter bike," I'm thinking of hub gears and fenders to start with, and probably studded (or at least knobby) tires. ...
