Dibs and PM sent!
My current daily ride/commuter. It does occasional lock-up duty so I tried to make it as understated as possible so that it blends in:...
What a find!!! I love how "American" this frame is, it's there in every detail. Come to think of it I can't think of a small American builder I don't like. It's great to see the push for invention...
Looking great! FYI the model was Chic! Complete with exclamation mark.
Crane is one maker, you can definitely order them from Velo Orange, for starters.
What I've found is that I'm actually better climbing hills, even steep ones, on a singlespeed. When I'm riding a geared bike I often spend mental and physical energy trying to get into the "right"...
Beautiful job, the gruppo looks perfect on that build, as does the saddle.
Or you can take the route I've been using so far this year, haven't been beaten by a hill yet: 44 x 18.
I love how this bike pulls it all together - an early Pinarello built by Galmozzi that looks like a Legnano! Bike-nerd paradise.
Amazing frame. Looks VERY similar to one I was chasing in Toronto but couldn't afford. Cyclops are one of my all time favourites. This one is definitely a Mulholland built Cyclops, its got all of...
Whatever it its, it's kewl. Looks like a bike that someone lavished attention on, then passed on to another owner who used it as a beater/city bike. I like the paint job and wacky detailing.
To the OP: building a bike up from the frame is an incredibly expensive route to take. I've done it many times and had fun doing it, but be prepared to spend $1000 for a bike that will sell for $300...
I weigh 150 and I can attest to exactly what rhm is saying. Another key difference is what kind of rider you are. I'm a recreational rider and I can't tell the difference between steels at all. I...
Very cool idea! I have some spare hoodless levers around, I think I'm going to have to copy this.
It doesn't get any cooler than that. Congratulations, that is a stunning bicycle by any measure.
That is one beautiful build. I can't imagine a more perfect match to the green and gold than the espresso saddle and bars. Awesome.
Just do exactly this step by step and it will work out perfectly.
Fantastic job. Saddle was the perfect choice!
Oh yeah here's a picture of the crankset. Size looks more like a 49/50cm to me.
Oh yeah, as to the rest of the bike, I like it. I'm a fan of Merciers in general. Will it fit you though? That is one little bike. Look at the head-tube!
It's a Sakae CR, one of my favourite cranksets!
I think you've got it. All the examples I can find are aluminum.
This thread needs more pictures! For me, it's almost always Benotto tape. I can't get enough of it. Probably because when I was an impressionable teenager all the high end bikes were rocking it.
That is one interesting frame. Can't wait for someone who knows more than me to figure it out!
Not necessarily, it seems there was a road version. Maybe a touring version as well?
