    I don't think it's an April fools joke per se. All of these have been on Boston CL for the entire winter. Maybe he'll have better luck here :rolleyes:.

    I'm sayin' when the ladies see guys like us riding by on such sweet vintage goodness, they're going to want to jump on. You've gotta put em somewhere.

    Led Zep's jet had 20X the teenage groupies? Sounds like you need to install a larger rack, you know that 80's touring bikes are chick magnets right?

    When exactly are you planning to go? The reason I ask is because the trail may not be clear of snow and ice. I was on the Farmington Valley Greenway today and there was still quite a bit of ice and...

    I think that frame designers have finally begun to address the issue of raising the handlebars on threadless setups with higher/extended head tubes. While this is great, it still doesn't solve the...

    That sucks, you really don't see touring mixtes often. Sorry you missed it.

    Was it a Nitto Technomic stem raised to the minimum insertion point? What was the extension? I think any frame with 6" of quill exposed will feel noodly. Go French fit with a shorter extension and it...

    Man, if you hate the selection available in cassettes, you'll really hate the freewheel selection. Seriously, Shimano HG50 7 speed cassettes are available in 13-23. Order them online if you must. If...

    There's a nice Univega Gran Turismo mixte on my local CL. It is a full on touring bike with cantis, rack mounts, triple cranks, etc. It looks to be around a 1984. My Gran Turismo is a 1983 and it's...

    In retrospect I guess my last post was a bit harsh. I generally agree with a lot of what GP has to say about bike setup and comfort and like his bikes pretty well. What I don't understand is the...

    All I know is that rutted up MTB trails are dangerous. It irks me when I see quads tearing up the trails this time of year. The ruts that they leave suck your tires into them. It's easy to loose...

    I would give $50 for the yellow bike if the components were in good shape. It has barcons, a nice Sugino crank, a gran comp stem (in 21.1?), and a canti bossed chrome fork. Those parts in good...

    Totally rad 80's MTB out here. Check out the roller cams on the fork and chain stays. Would probably be an awesome drop bar conversion for touring with those mid fork eyelets and spoke holders. Not...

    Reflectalight sells a bulb that does have a rectifier built in, it's also non polar. For the few dollars more you pay for it, you get a much easier install. My light would require some kind of...

    Reflectalite makes plug and play bulbs for older dynamo setups. The problem with flashlight LEDs is that they need DC and dynamos put out AC. You can run a bridge rectifier, but for a couple more...

    I was in one of the shops around here and they were working on one of those. I must say, it was pretty nice with the matching fenders, chrome rack, and 650A wheels. I'd definitely grab one if I saw...

    +1. Both bikes are around the same size also. It's possible that the guy/girl fixes up bikes, rides them for a while and sells what isn't keeper material.

    Agreed on the Power Shifters. I have 2 pairs, one is on my 1987'ish chrome Mt. Hood with Suntour XC sport derailleurs. They shift very smoothly and they just look right on an 80's mountain bike.

    I think you are on to something with using the wheels for the World Sport. In my experience, men's bikes sell better than women's. Paying $20 for the complete wheel set would net you +$40 on the sale...

    I like the idea that cycling is full of possibilities both known and unknown, I can relate to that. If that is true, then maybe a versatile bike is what you need. If I had that Prelude, I'd sell it...
