    I've got the same bike in that size. I love mine and ride it whenever I go to my parents (where it is stored since I have too many bikes at home). I've got a newer smoke painted ironman frame in...

    While I'm not a coffee drinker, I'm very fond of the solostove, you load it with little bits of wood from trees or bushes (dead stuff as big around as your thumb) light it up and it'll heat a liter...

    Ask the seller if he did the single speed conversion, and if so, if he still has the shoebox full of parts. I've bought two single speed bikes (one a very nice Merckx Professional) and had the owner...

    I had a similar experience when someone messed with my bar-end shifters while my bike was locked in a public place. I climbed on and started pedaling and had that result. Now I always leave them on.

    I've got a Burley tandem with a softride stoker setup. My wife loves it, and anything that makes a ride more enjoyable for her automatically ranks pretty high in my book.

    I have a pair of those Avenir barends, taken off my DBR Axis TT. I'm afraid I don't have the headset you are looking for.

    Old Bitty
    Blue Hair
    Lemon Sucker
