    A while ago I snagged a double-leg pletscher but it seems to weigh at least a pound, I haven't brought myself to install it on any bike and I don't even know where it is come to think of it.

    Thanks! It's such a great rider, I wish I'd got the taller stem last year though, improving the fit has been such a revalation to me.

    I've upgraded my Miele Latina "road issue" to suit my riding style a bit more than the old tri-color crank I was running. I originally built it up with NOS 6400 hubs laced to mavic open pros and NOS...

    Don't "psych" yourself up too much and don't push too hard at the start. A steady pace, maybe a tad slower than you did the 65 miler at. Take it easier on any hills at the start so you have some...

    It's pretty picked over this time of year but over the winter they have a good selection of old 3 speeds.

    Well here's some pictures I took of the parts I used to rig up my alongha brakes. They're nice to use for these older Raleighs 'cos they have the cable entry on the same side as the braze-ons.

    I was lucky that the normandy hub I found was narrow enough that it squeezed into the front fork without much problem and it has a tiny axle like the old raleigh hubs did too.

    They kind of look like the hoods for their drop-bar v-brake levers. I've never seen those hoods available by themselves but I have a pair of the regular road levers and the hoods fit nicely.

    You can cut the stem off and then stick the fork upside down in a bucket with some lye. It'll eat all the aluminum away and you can replace the stem. You an also get a stem that fits this time. Coat...
