    Here's one in the southwest: old post, so maybe sold, but if not, it has everything you need: Cantilever brakes, front mid-fork rack mount, triple crank up front, suntour cyclone derailleurs, and 40...

    This is nothing against the LBS-- I am there a lot too-- but I'm going to give a shout out here to going vintage and to the idea of learning to do your own service. 18 months back, I knew nothing...

    These are both beautiful bikes! And I second mobile mail on "get one of both."

    Good to know, but what about the "Japan" on the disc sealing the hub? Sorry, not sure that to call that, but where the lock nut would be on a regular hub? Werent/arent PW all USA?
  8. Are there vintage Phil Wood look-alike hubs?

    I went to check out a bike today that was supposed to have Phil Wood hubs on it and appeared to be so from the advertised picture, but then getting there to see it, they didn't seem like PW hubs...

    Only other deciding factor I could think of is if you ever planned to use a trunk-style bag. Might have trouble on the narrow topped blackburn.

    But if you do buy the blackburn, go right to the...

  11. buying a frame without a fork-- how to source/replace?

    Ive been looking at a few frames lately, and have always just naturally steered away from frames unless they had the matching, original fork. Yes I see tons of frame-only sales.

    yeas, closest I came by eyeball was to the Ofmega CX:

    VeloBase.com - Component: Ofmega CX

    but I was guessing without similar loud-n-proud branding, it might be some competitor's knock-off? ...
  14. Unbranded Crankset, ID? With Campy/ofmega/aero mighty

    This is a wide-open search, and figured I'd start here following up on a different forum thread I asked about:

    Seems like you have the basics, by my take on things. Beyond that, obviously need camping gear. Oh, what size freewheel on the back? I went all the way to a 34 tooth in back, which paid off on...

    High-end frame for 27" wheels?

    I've slowly amassed the Campy components for a higher-end build (just gotta find the right frame), but wondering what, if any, higher end frames (from the 80's-ish) were built for 27" wheels (126...
