    I sold the framesets to a forum member at a swap a couple months ago. I wish him luck with the sale, I'm just happy to have some space back in my basement.

    I think you know what the deal is from this excerpt. Riding at night is cool, a completely different vibe than riding in the day. In addition, geeking out with lights is fun.

    As for riding at...

    I say do what feels good to you. There are plenty of people doing it the "right" way who experience pain. If it's wrong for you, your body will tell you.

    I wouldn't be concerned about the cranks at all. They look like a 130bcd road double that someone threw on there. I seriously doubt they are original and I would look at them as an item that needed...

    I believe southpawboston rides in the Catskills a bit. He's into dirt roads, but may be able to provide some useful advice.

    I think it can be done. During school there are busses running constantly from Amherst to Northampton. When I was at Umass they were free. There is a rail trail that also runs from Amherst to...

    Dynamo lights are much cheaper in Europe. I believe the new Cyo lights can be had for around $60 where they are around $100 in the US. Sidewall dynamos are also much cheaper if you are OK with them.

    Online shopping is going go be your friend if you are going go to be putting in serious commuting miles. If you get all your stuff from the LBS, you'll pay almost double. Niagaracycle has some really...

    I received and installed the bulb in my Soubitez generator with golf ball light and went out for a ride. I hate to say but it wasn't much of an improvement. I don't blame the bulb so much as the...

    Why on earth would anyone want to cover up some of the coolest vintage MTB brakes ever invented? You show them off not cover them up!

    We had a joker like that on Hartford,CT CL a while back. Man, he would get slammed by the other users. I replied to his ad and told him his bikes were nice, but to stop with the bike lessons and...

    papik: I really love the bike, it's a great color scheme and nicely appointed. I have one of those little Soubitez generators and it's a nice little unit, nice and quiet without a lot of drag...

    I removed a square taper by heating it gently with a propane torch, keeping it away from the spindle. I pulled it off by hand with a pair of leather fireplace gloves pretty easily.

    I'm going to say beater also. Not that it isn't a good bike, it's just that there isn't anything particularly different about it than many other mountain bikes from that era. The price was definitely...

    C'mon man, where's the pics? Seriously, some of the early Ross MTBs were cool and definitely classic in the mountain bike world. I love my chrome Mt Hood. I'm not really familiar with the Mt. St....

    The freewheeling cranks allow you to set up a mid drive. In a mid drive, the motor and large chainring are connected by a chain. This will be your primary reduction gear. You then run a chain from...

    There are usually quite a few vintage light setups on the bay. I picked up 3 soubitez dynos (including a bottom bracket unit), with lights, and a Union bloc generator as a lot last year. I've got 3...

    :lol: No offense intended. I prefer those type of saddles on cruisers and upright bar bikes. They just look wrong to me on a bike with drop bars.

    Good call on the rack. I thought the front rack was on it when I saw the ad on CL. I definitely remember the goofy saddle. Cool bike, you don't see many of them around.

    I'm with gugie and Noglider on this one. There are some cool gas pipe bikes out there that would work for what you want (like the carbolite Peugeots mentioned). The ability to run wider tires or...

    6 or 7 speed and indexed will be tough to find new. Sunrace sells some nice looking 8 speed shifters (m96 r800) which would likely work with 7 speed pretty well as the spacing is close. The last...

    If you are looking for good quality and good looking indexed thumbies, you'll probably have to get some vintage deore or deore xt shifters from the bay. There is also the Paul's thumbies+DT levers+...
