    Depending on date and time, I would like to attend as well.

    One thing. Last time, we had a nice leisurely ride with good people and fluid conversation. I'm guessing the next ride will be similar....

    How come I have this sneaky suspicion that this is a re-badged bike?

    Either way, I'd still say cannibalize it for the group and see if you can turn a buck or two on the frame.

    I found another solution but thank you the offer, Ragnar.

    I have these in black. They are really comfortable and have a wonderful high-end feeling. After a season of riding, I did hand wash them which made a significant difference. The only thing I wish...

    +1 from me too on what The Golden Boy says about the original post.

    Here's my example.

    Thanks everyone!
    The consensus seems to be using a P-clamp then fabricate the rest. The bracket that came with the guard won't reach either from the seatstay or the chain stay. I'll need something...

    A couple of years back, I realized I was on track to purchase a new (to me) house. Since then, I started amassing images of organization within garages and shops. I still keep the archive going...
  10. Fitting a chainguard where it doesn't fit

    Civia makes the Bryant chainguard. It's slim, sleek, classic and minimal.

    However, the chainguard is also designed for their belt driven Civia bikes without derailleurs. Fitting it to a...

    From heat shrink tubing, automotive rear air shock sleeves to official Jagwire black housing liner, it proves there is certainly more than one way to skin a cat (great expression, don't you think?!)....
  12. The Elusive Bottom Bracket Cable Housing

    I've always wondered why the standard for derailleur cable routing under bottom brackets is to not use any cable housing. In the past, I have seen others slip the cable through a very thin housing...

    A year ago, a 1972 Nishiki Safari came up on eBay and was parallel posted on Portland, Oregon Craigslist. Before that, I hadn't heard of that particular model. I talked to the owner and went to see...

    I have been watching this one too. Is the drive/bus/train down to Salem/Kaizer worth it? Hmmmmm.

    A note from Dave Moulton

    Legendary frame builder, Dave Moulton, put out a very wise, considerate and thoughtful end-of-the-year newsletter for his bike registry followers today.

    Thanks for the Cyclocross nudge but the reason I put this topic in C&V is a reason still nobody has really touched.


    I'm considering a 1xn city bike setup on an entirely vintage frame. I may...
  19. Am I late to the party or is this narrow/wide thing the newest, emerging trend?

    A well-respected friend linked me to well done steel All-City Space Horse build. Clicking through shows a Paul dogtooth installed. I mention the look of dogtooth being an eyesore and he tells me of...

    I certainly did switch them out. I tried everything and asked my buddies working at shops if they had any thoughts. In the end, it just... wouldn't... work. Now, that was a Nishiki Cresta GT and...

    I haven't measured how wide the canti posts are on my Kodiak but I know that the '86 Cresta I had would not accept Tektro CR720's because of how narrow the fork blade was. So, when I upgraded my...

    6 or 7 months of being pressed under a stack of books later, I decided to take my Dropouts poster to the frame guy 3 blocks away from my house. $28 to heat press out the wrinkles I couldn't and put...

    Not to derail the original conversation, but is there any chance you know if there are plans to hold the Centenario Bartali annually or was this just a one time event for Gino Bartaliís 100th...

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
    The more I mull this over the more I can't escape the nagging feeling of how the chainring guard really removes so much of the beauty of a crankset by masking it...
