    Obviously, I don't actually hate these people, I usually chuckle at their antics, but I have learned to slow down since their behavior is unpredictable. On one case I came up on a couple and said...

    I hate people on multiuse paths that move to the left when I call out "On your left". I also hate people that move to the left when I ding my bell at them. WTF. WTF IS THAT.

    The BS78 flat washers that may still be available on Ebay are fatter than the washers needed in the SL-BS64 shifters or Paul Thumbies, FYI. They function but offset the hole in the shift lever so...

    My first rebuild, actually the second rebuild on the original frame. I have owned the frame since 1974 and I will never sell it.

    I like my drop bar High Plains so much that when the local community bike shop set an incomplete High Plains aside to be stripped for parts, I stripped it myself and bought the frame for a nominal...

    The Tservs have been great tires. Roll fast, good on wet surfaces and corner well. I regularly roll over broken glass on my commute and no flats so far. I weighed mine before installation and they...

    That statement is uninformed and I am being charitable here. Magny-X tubing was Ishiwata's seamed strip manganese-molybdenum tubing, similar to mid-level offerings from Reynolds (like 501), True...

    Where do you live? Leave the bike on your front porch and I'll come over and scratch it up a bit for you.

    You're welcome.

    I use a vintage Rhode Gear trunk rack on my battered, little SUV. It holds three bikes, I bought it at a flea market for $15. My wife's crossover has a Hidden Hitch installed on it and we use an...

    Yup, it's a 1991 model, the only year they offered the High Plains in opaque white.

    $88 won't buy you much of a camera lens (non-vintage that is). Even a cheap auto-focus zoom is in the $300 range.

    27" to 700c is an easy conversion if you have the 4mm brake reach and is all but invisible to the eye. 4mm is only 5/32 of an inch, just a hair over 1/8".

    There should be no play if the hub is properly adjusted. In fact the bearings should have a small amount of pre-load. Otherwise you are riding on one or two engaged bearings. This will result in...

    You can cram in a 130mm road rear wheel with an 8-speed cassette as is (or cold-set the rear dropouts slightly), and put 8-speed Shimano bar end shifters on it.
