    The manufacturers don't seem to be interested in producing a high end touring group from what I've seen. The existing higher end groups won't work for touring gear ratios, so bike manufacturers have...

    Now it looks like there's going to be a swap in Dudley, MA the following weekend. It appears to be the Old Roads swap. Has anyone ever gone to that one? If so, how was it? It's quite a ride for me...

    I'm going. The table fee is a bit much, but I am just looking to get rid of some stuff and get some space back. A friend of mine may split a table if he can come down.

    If the stem is nothing special and you don't care about destroying it, you could cut through the quill and bolt just below the extension. The quill would just slide out if you grab it with a vice...

    I'm pretty sure it's a Continental due to the tubular fork and alloy stem. I think $50 would be a good deal, but $100 isn't too out of line for a vintage bike.

    What the bike is worth depends on where you are selling/buying it, the condition, and season. It appears to be a Schwinn Continental in OK shape. In my area, in winter, maybe $100 and see what...

    True enough. I hadn't even considered building a 26" wheel with a road hub for such a bike, I was thinking a wheel swap from a donor bike to keep costs down.

    I've seen some of your work on the forums and can confidently say that there's no doubt you could master index shifting if you wanted to. None of this stuff is rocket science as far as I'm concerned,...

    Have you decided on your cockpit setup yet? If you are doing a drop bar conversion you will need brake levers, bars, cables, and bar tape at the very least. The shifters and derailleurs could be used...

    Nice bike there, I love chrome MTBs. If you have a slingshot stem on there, you can get 22mm motocross bars that will work. I googled "blue anodized motocross bars" and some popped up, if that's the...

    I generally prefer thumbies or trigger shifters, but grip shifters are good in some cases. I like them on a bike with north road style bars, triggers don't feel as good on that type of bar to me. I...

    Nice bike! I'm curious how the brakes feel with the mix of vintage levers to dual pivot calipers, that's a setup I've considered.

    I'm in the "remove it" school myself. I have rarely seen a recently serviced bottom bracket on the bikes I buy, and usually they've been ridden with no lubrication and/or poor adjustment. Most of the...

    If the wrenches are specifically to work on your bike, then I would say not to bother. They won't fit pedals, hub cones, headsets, etc. If it's bike tools you want get a pedal wrench, 13-18mm cone...
