    I have purchased a couple bikes from that seller. He does a nice job of prepping the bikes and the prices seem reasonable to me. You can't go wrong with a LeTour. For a first time buyer with limited...

    Indeed. The French knew their engineering when it came to bikes.

    I don't get the cookie cutter Japanese built 80's bikes. Bland, one brand looks like the other, and the Shimano/ SunTour components are lacking in panache. But then I like Stronglight, Simplex,...

    I have an ITM riser stem that accepts 26.4 bars. I think it's a 110 mm though. I would search ebay for ITM.

    I ride on Vittoria Rallyes. Freshly mounted they can have some wobbles. But after you ride them a while they seem to round out and soften up a bit. I ride them at 85-90psi. Above that they are rocks....

    I think my other Mavic crank is on a 113 English BB spindle and this one was on a Italian 115 spindle. Though I never put it into use. Didn't even put a chain on the bike. But it appeared to be...

    Mavic Starfish cranks 172.5

    172.5 cranks. They have a swirl scuff on them. Quite large actually. I polished up an identical set on another bike and, oh, they are nice. So if the swirl bothers you a bit of emery paper and an...

    That's a cool bike. I would find a set of old tubular wheels. Put some cyclo cross tubulars on it, maybe 32-34mm wide. Put a Simplex chain guard that attaches to front derailleur on it. And a funky...

    In my opinion it's too nice to make onto a single speed. And not really the type of bike that lends itself to fixed gear/single speed use. Its a long wheelbase touring type geometry. You want...

    I've bought and sold quite a few Grand Jubile and never approached $500 on one. I just parted one out that had the Jubile derailleurs. I had it listed on Chicago CL for $375 and the best and only...

    I agree with the donor bike approach. I will buy a whole bike just for one part, or for the wheels, or crank, whatever. Then sell off the stuff I don't need, keep the cool unexpected treasures that...

    Cool bike. It would be nice to see a picture of the whole bike. I'm thinking somewhere in the $500 range from what I can see. The crankset alone can fetch upwards of $150 by itself.

    Really surprized people like the TDF here. Most french bikes and Gitanes get pretty beat up by the appraisers. I've bought and sold 6 TDF's over the last couple years. It was a very popular bike in...

    And to some people $120 for a seat at a ballgame is no big deal. Its a class distinction. I would never let my bike be touched at bike shop. Heck I do the brakes on my car because the shop charge is...

    I'm a brush and roller painter. Painted my VW Bus with a waterborne alkyd gloss paint. Cleans up with water, dries to the touch in 1/2 hour or less, and dries hard in 24 hours. Levels out like a...
