    Not a lead, but make sure she knows about Tempest or something similar. Good luck to her, sounds like a nice wife.

    Yeah, I'd have to buy two. Maybe one of them could be a Seven.

    I always cover the bands. I've used Benotto quite a bit and always cut a piece off the roll for the band, and I've made it work with wide Cinelli 66 bars. 1/3 overlap might be too much though.

    I just use the Zinnzer stuff straight from the can, no thinning. It's fairly drippy; I don't think I'd want to thin it. I usually do 3-4 coats. The first couple leave the cloth tape pretty rough. As...

    I toss both rolls in a jar, add lukewarm water, and let it sit 10 mins or so. It's thoroughly soaked; I actually squeeze the roll to wring out excess before wrapping. I don't remove the backing on...

    2 rolls needed.

    I have used Newbaums plenty wet and had no problems with it.

    I have to say, the more I look at it, the more I like it. That rack has some really nice lines.

    I'm just picturing some kid with his dungarees rolled up, tearing around on it all afternoon, then...

    Hmmm...Napa, Provence, Tuscany...it seems great cycling and great wine go hand in hand. Coincidence, or part of some divine plan?

    Yes, buy it. I believe your assessment is correct.

    My '78 TC (54cm) is 22 with Concor saddle and a spare tire so I think you're close.

    This is Benotto, not Fizik, but the aesthetic issues are similar.

    You pretty much described the way my Gran Sport fits me, and I've been riding it since 1973.

    I don't generally use one on a road bike, but I've used this Scotchbrite tape for other things. It's very durable, the adhesive doesn't let go, and yes, it's reflective.

    Agree with others, try a light paint polish like Meguiar's, then wax. Don't bother painting, it should clean up well.

    I'd go with a 7 speed freewheel. If it turns out you really like the bike but...

    I assume he means that every time you torque the crankarms on the spindle, you are deforming the crankarm slightly. Do it enough and it's deformed to the point of uselessness. I don't have enough...

    I have drilled and tapped a panhead screw as nlerner mentioned. Worked great. Iirc it's M4.

    Also, a little loctite on those is a good idea, judging by how many seem to go missing.

    On the one hand, it seems like a really trivial matter. But I can see why you're vexed. In the pic you posted, it's apparent that the grooves are closer to the right crest than they are to the left....

    Quite interesting, but apparently not a foolproof system, as I think I see some pitting.
