    Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe on the boundary of San Diego and La Mesa closed their doors about 2 years ago. I've been unable to find another place with bins of old parts, and an appreciation for classic...

    At that price I think it's worth a look. Check the usual stuff...make sure it's not dented, fork is straight, no significant rust, seapost and stem aren't stuck, and that shifting works, and wheels...

    Ask the seller if he did the single speed conversion, and if so, if he still has the shoebox full of parts. I've bought two single speed bikes (one a very nice Merckx Professional) and had the owner...

    I know it was adjusted, it happened on the 71 SuperCourse I built for one of the early "VeloCheapo" contests. And I can't say for sure because it was already bent when I got to looking at it after...

    I had a similar experience when someone messed with my bar-end shifters while my bike was locked in a public place. I climbed on and started pedaling and had that result. Now I always leave them on.

    My dad used to say "sugar jets" a lot after he returned from Vietnam. As a kid I thought that's what everyone said when they got mad. I appreciate now the effort he made to be a good example in...

    I've got a Burley tandem with a softride stoker setup. My wife loves it, and anything that makes a ride more enjoyable for her automatically ranks pretty high in my book.

    I have a pair of those Avenir barends, taken off my DBR Axis TT. I'm afraid I don't have the headset you are looking for.

    I think they can be variously called:
    Old Bitty
    Blue Hair
    Lemon Sucker
    and Bitter Shrew

    Very interesting, I'm sure it's fun to ride, and would certainly be a conversation starter.

    I just picked up this same frame. I'm thinking about doing something with it that I can post in the "Steel Frames with Ergos/Brifters" thread. I think its worthy of a 10 speed groupset.
