    Not as familiar with the America, but it's not a Professional. All the C&V Pros lack eyelets on the dropouts, and have scooped (instead of flat) seat stay ends at the point where it connects to the...
  2. Recommendations for vintage saddles for narrow sit bone types?

    Standard disclaimers about saddle comfort being a completely individual thing, I'm at least trying to get in the vague ballpark, since it's rather difficult to find bike shops that will trial out...

    Doesn't really answer the question though. There is either another numbering system that remains elusive, or there were 50000+ other Professionals cranked out the same month as mine.

    ISO:

    -- Campagnolo or Suntour clamp-on downtube cable stops

    -- At least one, ideally two, Campy Record brake pivot bolts. The size you'd use for rear nutted and front recessed.

    I may be moving up to that general area in the not too distant future, and I'm still sort of doing my own recon on the local shops. Which place is this, if you don't mind my asking?

    My Fuji Pro comes in at ~21.2 as I have it right now, mildly modernized (saddle, pedals, wheelset) with some vintage weight weenie-ism.

    Honestly, that's how I obtained all of the pro team kit that I wear. I'll gladly ***** myself out a tad while commuting for a well-made five dollar thrift store jersey.

    10 on the old-school, 2 on the modern. Sadly, I don't really have the budget to score higher on the latter.

    IMHO, there's something to be said for the difference between the patina that comes from genuine use, and the patina that comes from outright neglect. Ultimately, they're both part of the bike's...

    At the moment, the only ones that I've used are the 8-speed Ultegra (SL-BS64). I was given a set a few weeks ago, and I'm in love when them for commuting. I'm pretty well sold on the concept, and...

    Age of a Mavic Aksium wheelset?

    Received a set of these as hand-me-downs recently, and I was wondering if anyone knew if there was an easy way to determine what "model year" they might have come from?

    I could easily burp out a slightly modernized version of my Fuji Team. Stopping might be a problem as I lack a decent set of brakes that aren't already spoken for.
