    I'm running that BB on a U08. They are thick cups and definitely work with my series 3 JIS spindle. I don't know the ISO race to race measurement but it shouldn't be too hard to find out if it's the...

    For all the talk about relubing all of the bearings on a bike around here, you rarely hear mention of relubing pedal bearings. I'll admit that I don't always do it, only on nice pedals. I've picked...

    It isn't crazy to have a pedal of unknown age and miles fail. It would be really hard to prove the shop was at fault in my opinion. I say just buy new pedals and be happy that they didn't fail while...

    There were a couple of kids in the neighborhood that were riding down the hill dragging their feet. I checked out their bikes and both had no brakes. They were department store bikes that had been so...

    Just thought I'd update this thread. I ordered a reflectalite NL343 bulb for my Soubitez 89 dyno with golf ball light. The bulb is rated at 1 watt, so I was thinking I would run the 2.4w headlight...

    I sold one of those a few years back for $250. It was a cool bike with an interesting frame made of Tange Infinity.

    Beautiful day to ride. I've got to get out there for one of these rides. I see Dave and Frog made it. Good guys, they cleaned me out at the Easthampton swap :).
  8. Agreed, they aren't much to look at for sure....

    Agreed, they aren't much to look at for sure. They ugly up the bike a bit, but it's a trade off I'm willing to take for the better braking. Good point also on the lever quick releases.

    Sorry to quote myself, but it is in reference to the brakes. The Tektro800A brakes are installed and I went for a short ride. My impression so far is that they are much better than the Mafac Racers...

    Yeah, the bike fairy is fake. I feel like I did when I found out Santa wasn't real :cry:. As for the bike being a curse, looking at the fork and all the work it needed maybe it was a blessing he came...

    Well, mystery solved. My neighbor mentioned he had a bike with a bent front wheel like a year ago, so I told him to bring it by and I could throw an old steel wheel on there for him. He never came...

    +1 not only is it fun, but a couple of key upgrades could make for a more enjoyable time. Better to worry about the bike before the tour in my opinion.

    I am setting up my U08 in a similar manner. I just ordered some Tektro800 nutted brakes for it because the racers feel too spongy with the modern Tektro levers. I received them yesterday and they...

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll start by trying to straighten out the fork issue, lube and adjust the cables, put a spare wheel and saddle on it, and take it for a spin. Hopefully it'll ride...

    Thanks, I'll look into getting the angles figure out. I'd be running a handlebar bag and the widest tires possible(37mm or so) which would slow down the steering a bit from what I understand.

    Blessing or curse?

    I went for a nice family ride today with my wife and daughter and came home to find a bike in my driveway leaning against the house. There was no note on it, so as of now it's a mystery. It appears...

    It's all good. I don't let anything bother me here too much anymore. Lord knows, it's not easy guaging intention or tone from a computer.

    crank_addictobviously you missed out on something, humor. Steve was laughing about how he could have sold it for a lot, I was continuing on with the joke. As for etiquette, I am well aware of the...

    I wouldn't count on it. I had some Vittoria zaffiro wire bead tires that blew off of a non hooked rim at 90psi. I ended up running them at 75 psi and they were fine.

    I am in agreement with the sentiment that really large tires on the road are a drag. For me, I like 32-37mm tires on my road bikes. With those widths, I feel the difference in comfort without the...

    You should have listed it as a Vintage Paramount constructeur randonneur rack and watched the offers come pouring in.

    It's a Schwinn carrier for the deluxe touring bag. My 1970 Super Sport had one on it.

    Something else to consider is which shop to use. The first shop sounds like a good one. Not only was he right about the bike, he actually tried to get it to work for you. The second shop sounds like...

    Hard to tell from the pics, but are those v-brake levers with canti brakes? If you seem to have no brake power, that would be why. It also looks like a road front derailleur being shifted by a...

    I think it's weathered paint also and not rattlecanned. I've polished paint like that on a stem with automotive paint scratch remover and it brought the shine right back. I personally think $100 is...
