    SR frames are all braze-on, ST frames are all clamp on 31.8.

    One of those eBay sales was a bike of mine- the blue and yellow one. Frame was in OK shape when I got it but needed a lot of touch ups by hand.

    Robbie should arrive soon, we'll be heading north after loading up Carla and her associated support systems. Forecast is for rain this afternoon as we head north, but tomorrow looks decent.

    Not as much as you might hope, better to check completed listings to get a better idea. The higher bids/sales typically go for earlier lugged framesets. And potential biyers will be asking you if...

    You are correct, anything 8 speed OEM would be 130OLD. Very possible that Cannondale made that frame as a 128 spacing so as to accept both 126 and 130 hub sizes, it was pretty common by then. ...

    That Quickbeam has two chainrings. When approaching a steep hill, the rider can dismount and drop the chain onto the small ring by hand or with a twig from the side of the road. True, I swear!
