    If you've ridden just about any modern bike lately, road, mountain, cruiser or hybrid, you're going to find this old folder feels very wobbly and unsatisfying for the long haul. As a...

    Keep everything except the freewheel. You should be able to get a 28 or (maybe) a 30T cog under that derailleur.

    You can tell by looking at the freewheel which freewheel remover tool you need, so...

    Nothing's changed there, except the range and quality of clear topcoats to which you can add the tint of your choice. I think that's the finish in the case of the guy who posted that gorgeous...

    Looks like it may as well be chromovelato, the one you linked to looks like the finish is just as delicate, with the "copper" scraped off the chrome plating scraped off in many places.

    Got some wood lying around, and some tools to work it? You could carve out a groove that fits the convex side of the stay in, say, a piece of 2x6, then take another piece if wood cut and sanded down...

    I had a 2100 of similar vintage (same frame). It felt stiff to me, but the only other bike I had at the time was my much larger, decidedly noodly Lambert. I think the combination of the smaller...

    Well yes, that paint is pretty atrocious, and a Super Record is a pretty low end bike. But on the other hand, if you can get up and down the hills of SF with that gearing, you're a better man than...

    Compared to my 1977 Pro, yeah, they're pretty soft; or rather they break in really fast. The new ones I have, anyway (two of 'em). Never had a vintage one.
